So and Mi come to 1st Grade

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!

 Writing 'So-So Mi So-So Mi' 

 Writing 'So-So Mi So Mi'

Some riser groups got to write their So and Mi patterns on the staff in the middle 
of the Music Room carpet.
