First Grade

1st NINE WEEKS

  • We will be reviewing the concepts we explored and learned in Kindergarten such as fast/slow, high/low. up/down, quiet/loud.
  • We will be focusing on preparing to learn about rhythm and how to read it! We will be listening to how many sounds are on our steady beats in the songs that we sing, move and play to.
  • Ask your child to sing "Acka Backa Soda Cracker" to you - this is our foundation song this nine weeks! The students love playing a game to this song!

2nd NINE WEEKS

  • Students now know the rhythms of quarter notes and two eighth notes. They can hear if a beat has one sound or two sounds, read those sounds using music notation and count the rhythm with counting syllables.
  • Ask your child to sing "Rain, Rain" to you - this is our core song this nine weeks! Also ask them to count the rhythm for you while they sing!
