Week of January 11

 Happy New Year! I hope you all had a nice Christmas. I enjoyed time with my family as well as the time off from school. For you students who are virtual - this was supposed to be my post for last week but I guess I forgot to publish it. Oops! I hope you enjoyed your week off from music class. 🙂

This week I'd like you to watch this year's Christmas Program. Pick at least one song to play or move along with the students. This is your only assignment this week. Below you will find a list of the grades and songs as well as what the activity is. Obviously, the songs featuring Boomwhackers cannot be played at home since you do not any Boomwhackers at home. 

4K & 5K

*I Want to Be an Elf (movment)

*Jingle, Jingle Little Bell (play Jingle Bells)


1st & 2nd

*Silent Night (movement)
