Arts Update: First Graders Get in the Rhythm
First graders are exploring rhythmic patterns using lightweight rhythm sticks at home. They have also been doing a lot of singing outdoors, in class, and online. In class, the songs took the form of hand motion interpretations and speaking the words while their teacher is singing along on a recording and accompanying the song live on the guitar. There is more than one way to sing a song, and first graders have found some creative, safe ways to do so.
