Music Assignment coming home

Greetings Parents,
Last week you should have seen an assignment come home with your student from the music room. This was a summative assessment and a chance for your child to show what they have learned this year in music. The pitches of Sol Mi and do as well as the rhythms of quarter note, two-8th notes, half note, and quarter rests were to be used and students needed to create a song that they could then sing for me in class. A second part of this assessment was putting the song onto the staff lines and then trading papers with another student to practice being a "real musician" and reading the notation.

Please Do the following:
1. read over the paper
2. have your child sing what they wrote
3. sign the paper
4. have your child bring the paper back to the music room for credit.

Thanks for your help at home to make your studnet more successful. I have included a copy of the assignment in this email. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks

When your Student turns in their homework this year, they will need to make sure it gets in the correct folder for their class. Please go over this with your child before you send the work back to school with them. It is VERY important that they place it in the correct folder to receive credit for their work.

music homework on it’s way

Parents –
This week you should see TWO music papers come home. On one of them, your child had to write down a known song in high/low language, then sing it and write it on the staff lines. The other assignment was one where your child had to create their own high/low composition, then sing it and write it on the staff lines. Both of these were summative assessment pieces in our study of Sol and Mi.

Please take a minute to listen to your child sing both papers, then sign it and return it to school for credit. If you have any questions, let me know.

I have also attached both assignments to this email in case you do not see them come home.

Thanks for all you do to help you child succeed!!

2 assignments coming home-rhythm and melody

Parents –
You should see 2 assignments come home today or next week. One of them is a melodic study we did with High and Low singing last month where the students used strategies to make up their own songs for 16 beats. The other one is a rhythmic composition they created after learning about the quarter rest (a silent beat).

Please take a moment to look over the work, talk to your child about what they did, and have them perform it for you.

Make sure you sign it and have your child return it to the music room for credit.
Thanks
