1-4 Composition Project

Class 1-4 started this school year with an introduction to composition. They learned two different sounds, TA and SH, which we represented using hearts and quiet faces. Students created their own patterns using these symbols and then performed them for the class on the djembe drum.

5th Grade Rhythm Sentences

5th grade students are learning to read, write, and perform rhythms. Student were tasked with writing a sentence about something they did this summer. Then, they determined the number of syllables in each word of their sentence. Thinking of the sounds that each type of rhythm makes, students matched each word to a corresponding rhythm and drew that rhythm below the words. Finally, students performed their sentences, reading the words with the rhythm that they had created.
