Hi Grade 2's!

We have been learning  to play songs on the

keyboards and xylophones and have been using the

 

online virtual pianos during remote learning! 

 

Here is the link to an online keyboard if you don't

have a keyboard at home.

Virtual - xylophone

I normally love playing the recorder with Gr 2's,

 

however during Covid times, we will have to learn

 

other instruments. I am going to teach you some of

 

the songs we would perform on the recorder but we

will be playing it on the virtual instruments this term.  

 

Click on the videos and links to learn to play these songs!  Happy practising!

We have also been adding sound effects to the MORTIMER story by Robert Munsch and singing the chorus! 

  "Cling Clang Rattle Bing Bang,

  gonna to make my noise all day! 

                   HEY!"

 

Watch and listen to these Gr 1 students from another school (uploaded by Bow Tie Music) perform this story with the sound effects for the door, walking up and down the stairs (you can use instruments!) and of course sing!  Add in your dynamics (the loud and soft when your sing and perform the song!). 

You might even like to find another book your can add sound effects to when reading it or write your own music sound story!
