Today, we worked on some songs that we will be singing throughout the year: "Hello, Hello" and "Hello Everybody, Yes Indeed". During the latter, we kept the beat in our laps as well as bouncing and clapping. STEADY BEAT will be a theme in Kindergarten music classes. We also started learning another song, "Bienvenidos"(which means WELCOME in Spanish). Next week, we'll learn the dance for it. Additionally, we worked on Echo Clapping rhythmic patterns
to a beat count of four using Ta and ti-ti as well as counting 1, 2, 3, 4 with ands. In Music, Rhythm is the way the music goes. Additionally, I showed a video clip of Marie Osmond singing "Getting to Know You" from the Broadway musical, The King & I because we are all getting to know each other.
All in all, today was a favorable start to the year. I look forward to working with your Kindergarten children. Keep singing!
