Fourth Grade Week 8 -- Completing Our Songs
This week we used the music class to review the work the students have done in collaboration with one another on their 16 bar songs. I have to say, this assignment seems to have produced more resistance than in previous years. If we do it again next year I will certainly try to make more resources available on the blog and in the classrooms. However a number of kids were able to complete the assignment with excellent results as shown here in this sweet song from Mr. Basssett's class.
I will be transcribing more of these songs onto Sibelius music scoring software over the weekend so that we can sing a few of them in class. They will also be gathered in a book (as the 5th grade compositions were). This kids have until next week to complete their work.
