Week 7:  April 27- May 1

Grade 1:  Click Here for an amazing adventure with Freddie the Frog and the Flying Jazz Kitten by Sharon Burch!  April is Jazz Appreciation Month...a month to learn and appreciate an important part in our music history.  One of the best parts of Jazz is Scatting!  Scatting is when you use made up syllables to make rhythm and music.  Ella Fitzgerald is an excellent example of how scatting and singing come together! Try and scat along with Freddie in our story!  

Grade 2:  Click Here for your first adventure in learning the names of the notes on the staff with Freddie the Frog and The Thump in the Night.  It's that time of year when we begin to learn all about our staff and the names of the notes!  Do you know why this is so important?  You are getting ready to play the recorder in 3rd grade next year!  

Grade 3:  Click Here for the next adventure in learning about Rhythm and Music with Freddie the Frog and the Mysterious Wahoooo.  Feel free to play along with the rhythms by using a non-pitched percussion sound or take out your recorder and improvise or "make it up" with the notes we have learned so far (B-A-G-E).
