Notice how they are using an upstroke and a downstroke playing technique. They also learned how to play together as an ensemble and in two parts. I'm so proud of them in this clip because they sound so great together. Fifth grade is awesome!

Way to go 2nd grade. You look and sound great!

This dance comes from Quebec where it is but one part of the "quadrille." The quadrille is a sequence of dances done in a large square with more than one couple on each side of the square. The circle formation has become the traditional way to do this dance in New England. The students became familiar with dancing terms such as do si do, two hand turn, prominade, and a somewhat tricky partner switch near the end. It's great to see third grade working so well together! The partner switch is performed perfectly in this particular group.Third grade, you are awesome!!

This is the Tuesday/Thursday group performing one of their favorite songs entitled, "Rocky Mountain." We used this folk song to learn and practice counting the half note. Have your student sing the melody using rhythm names instead of lyrics. You sound awesome second grade!
