In Kindergarten music class we will…
Experience music through song, musical games, vocal exploration, movement and, later in the year, instruments
Keep the beat, perform the rhythm, demonstrate why they are different
Explore various ways to move in space – in place and traveling, large and small movements, movements at different levels.
Identify and demonstrate 5 different ways we use our voices: Singing, Speaking, Whispering, Calling, and using our Inner voice.
Listen, Perform, Move to and Describe music and sounds that are – same/different, louder/softer, faster/slower, higher/lower, longer/shorter
Begin to practice in tune singing in songs within an acceptable range.
Compare and identify adult and child voices and begin to identify instrument families.
