In music we build our understanding of the elements of music, our listening skills, and learn core songs. We learn theory, play instruments, sing and dance, and discover composers and their music, and we have fun!
This year we have a wonderful opportunity to pilot a new music program called Quavers. Quavers is a world leader in online curriculum development for grades Pre-K-8. Their approach to online curriculum development uses engaging digital resources and has been adopted by 8,000 schools worldwide within the past four years! We are so excited to be using it in the classroom this year!
Music meets only once a week, with the exception of middle school, so attendance is very important! Grades are based on behavior, participation, and verbal or written assessments. I will be watching closely for our five core behaviors - respect, responsibility, compassion, gratitude, and integrity.
