2nd Grade Music

2nd graders have music twice a week for 43 min each and every other week they have an SEL/Music class for 43 minutes on Wednesdays. We explore melody, rhythm. form, expression, and improvisation through singing, dancing, and playing pitched and un-pitched musical instruments.  We also explore performance skills & managing performance anxiety through our concert. 

The 2nd graders have their special musical performance on
Friday, December 7, 2018 at 11:30 AM in Sellman (updated date!).
Doors open at 11:15am.

NOTE FROM DR. D.:
Dear 2nd Families:
Wow - what an amazing month of 2nd grade music. The students have been very busy bees working hard to figure out their parts, mark their scripts & develop their "fishy" characters for "The Big Clean Up!".  The script (with assigned parts - their names in the script) will be sent home in the homework folders this or next week. Please help your kids work on memorizing their lines & lyrics to the songs!  I am so very proud of the way your beautiful kids are working together. We started this musical with an SEL check in.  We talked about our excitement & anxiety around preparing a huge production.  We have worked every week on Performance Anxiety regulation techniques!  I have shared some of these in the Google Drive below.  Together we have set educational and emotional goals to provide all students with equal access to a safe environment to share their talents with each other & soon....with you!  (Concert is December 7 at 11:30 AM in Sellman)

 I will need helpers when it's time to put up the set and take down the set following the production. Please consider volunteering to help - thank you!
