Fourth Grade Week 6 & 7 -- Developing Our Songs
For the last two weeks Fourth Grade has continued to develop their melody lines which this week they will be turning into full blown songs in a collaboration with a classmate. Thia seems to have been more of struggle this year than in previous years. However, most students seem to have gotten things untracked finally. Here are a couple of examples of successful contour line/melody line projects from Mr. Bassett's class. If you're wondering about the teacher's and president's names, they are used to give the kids some interesting rhythmic ideas.
Homework -- due this Friday is your song melody combined with that of your table partner. Please don't forget about the lyrics -- I want to start singing a few of these next week.
