1st Grade has been exploring high and low sounds and this week, we renamed our two notes So and Mi (a minor third or G and E on the piano). The students practiced reading So and Mi from written music, practiced writing So and Mi on the music staff and even did a little ear training too! In our ear training, we listened to a So-Mi pattern and wrote it using Zoo Pals (paper plates) and our risers. Yes, it's true: Music can be written using many different things. Check out their fantastic work!
