2nd Grade Week 2 -- "Bate Chocolate" & "Ram Sam Sam"
In 2nd grade music this week the students learned two songs -- "Bate Chocolate," from Mexico and "Ram Sam Sam" from Morocco. The goal was to demonstrate to the kids that musical rhythm follows the rhythm of language, regardless of what language that might be. We also continued our discussion about the relationship between rhythm and beat using chopsticks and paper and introduced the concept of rests.
