Week Eight Second Grade -- Introducing pitched percussion

This week second graders continued to work with their drums and also began to learn how to "transfer the beat" to pitched percussion. This gave us an opportunity to work with the wonderful barred Orff instruments Friends of Third purchased last year. We'll be continuing with this next week so everyone gets a chance to play them.

Homework: No worksheet, but a letter went home inviting everybody to be part of the drum circle on June 11. Parents, I know things have a way of disappearing in backpacks, so if you did not get a letter please let me or your child's teacher know.
