Concert: Wednesday, November 15th
The Concert is at 12 Noon in the Due West Gym (this will need to be confirmed once the luncheon schedule has been created)
3rd Grade Music
3rd Grade students will learn to read music on the treble clef staff.
In 3rd grade music, the students will play recorders, keyboards and percussion instruments. These playing experiences will include a blend of improvisation and student creation in addition to playing traditional songs and playing from musical notation. Beginning in February, each student will be required to bring a folder and a recorder to class. The students will also sing an array of traditional songs from the United States as well as traditional songs from other nations. The students will read and perform music written on the treble clef staff. Rhythmically, students will read and perform eighth notes – half notes, and rests.
Grades: This is the music section of the 3rd Grade report card. For details about how these grades will be determined, see the curriculum page.
Learning Skills and Behaviors:
In my experience, the vast majority of students follow my rules and procedures consistently. I reward this good behavior by allowing students to wear ties. In the event that a student demonstrates inappropriate behaviors, that student’s grade will be lowered from S (Successful) to P (Progressing). If a student demonstrates frequent or consistent inappropriate behaviors, the student’s grade will be lowered to N (Needs Improvement). My rules and procedures are posted in both word and picture form in my classroom.
The 3rd Grade Concert will take place at 12:00 PM. This will be the only 3rd grade performance of the school year, so please make attending it a priority. All of the students will be preparing for the concert during music class, and I would love for all of you to be in attendance.
This concert will take place as part of the annual grandparents luncheon. Talk to your child’s teacher for details.
What to wear:
On the day of the concert, please have your child dress up. For example, the boys may wear slacks and a collared shirt; girls may wear slacks or skirt and a blouse, or a dress.
