In grades 3-5, we are studying different composers. 3rd Grade had Haydn, 4th Grade had Beethoven, and 5th Grade had Brahms. Now we are taking things to the next level and WE are the composers – using boomwhackers and our own stick notation systems!
We had a fall/Thanksgiving theme as we continued with our composing….
3rd Graders are shown here performing their own ostinatos (repeated patterns) with poetry, and 4th graders are shown performing their own rhythmic raps.
