This week I have been working with the lower elementary students on writing a class song. I introduced beginning chord theory and the students created the chord progressions for their songs. Students then worked in groups to write lyrics about being in class and their class pets. Upper Elementary students auditioned for their upcoming play “Bones” that we will perform in early February. We have also been learning and practicing the songs in the play as well as brainstorming ideas for the production. Students should know what parts they are playing by Friday before winter break. We will begin holding rehearsals when the students return after New Years.
