1st Grade Music

What we do:

  • Personal vocabulary to describe voices, instruments and music from diverse cultures
  • Identify musical forms (e.g., phrase, echo), and read, write and perform simple patterns of rhythm and pitch using beat and rest in variations of 4/4 time
  • Use singing voices with more accuracy, and learn to improvise rhythmic accompaniments using voice and body

How we do it:

  • Play instruments, sing, movement and verbalization
  • Performance and reflection
  • Orff Schulwerk program: rhymes, games, simple beats, wooden xylophones and metal glockenspiels
