2nd Grade Week 3 -- Son Macaron
I have been very neglectful of the blog the last couple of weeks, as a number of events at both of my schools seem to have consumed every minute of my spare time, but I will try to catch up today.
Last week in 2nd Grade Music we learned and played the Yugoslavian beat passing game "Son Macaron." I never cease to be amazed at the power of this simple song and game to get kids excited. As the game goes on, students who are caught transfer the steady beat to a variety to unpitched percussion instruments.
Speaking of percussion instruments -- in week 4 we start our gourd drum!
