studio time with mr. b

standards based program

(that's fun, too!)

K-2 students will create, perform, and record an original song that teaches proper sentence structure, capitalization, punctuation, and different parts of speech while simultaneously teaching music concepts such as proper singing technique, steady beat, melodic patterns, and connecting movement to melody. Students will reference different texts throughout the recording process, as well as work with physically engaging and funny practice examples as they sing, dance, and learn together.

3-5 students will create, perform, and record an original song that helps students identify which questions in ELA have surface level answers (spelling, referring back to the text, different parts of speech) and which questions require deeper thought to get to their answer (using context clues, visualizing what’s occurring in the text, finding the theme of a story.) Students will be shown tips on how to answer each of these questions, as well as participate in physically engaging and funny examples with the group. All of this is taught alongside music concepts such as proper singing technique, steady beat, melodic patterns, and connecting movement to melody.
