Singing 2 and 3 part songs with expanded range became a topic of work with Second and Third grades today. In Second grade we worked and ACTON LONG AGO song with singing and motions designed first to isolate half notes then to work in partners to complete the action of the song. In Third grade took a boat down a RIVER where we also worked the half note, then motions, then worked to perform the song in Canon. In each grade we placed a stead drone into Xylophones on the Half Note while singing. Each song made use of both the middle and upper register of voices to continued developing the ear and the voice for upper voice singing. All together a nice, fun and productive day in music!
