Kindergarten has been learning many things in the Music room. We have been focusing on following the heartbeat on paper and on the board (tracking) and on fast vs. slow. Fast and slow have been loads of fun! We have learned several songs including 'The Old Gray Cat', a song from our series, Spotlight on Music.
We learned 'The Old Gray Cat' first by using our visual literacy skills to talk through the story and the challenging vocabulary words found in the song. For example, the cat does not come sneaking, he comes creeping and the mice are not eating but rather nibbling the cheese. So if your Kindergartner has been telling you that he or she is nibbling dinner and learned that word in Music class, it's true!
One of the last things we did with this song was to act it out. We had such a BALL! I was able to take a few videos of their acting skills, but unable to post them due to some glitches with my video camera. The singers and I will take some new videos to share with you soon.
