Learning Targets in music are goals put in student friendly “I Can” statements. While there are other activities we work on at the same time, here are the current essential learning objectives for each grade level:
Kindergarten: I can play and move to a steady beat.
1st Grade: I can play quarter note, quarter rest and eighth notes in patterns on instruments.
2nd Grade: I can identify half rests and whole rests
3rd Grade: I can play “B”, “A”, and “G” on recorder with a good tone.
4th Grade: I can play eighth note/sixteenth note patterns on mallet instruments.
5th Grade: I can create a short opera or musical to perform in a group.
4th graders are also preparing for their Symphony Field Trip on Feb. 28
5th graders are also preparing to attend the opera on March 31. Please see opera post for more information.
