In the first two weeks of music, the second graders start to learn how to speak rhythms, using rhythm syllables from Feierabend's "Converstaional Solfege" curriculum. We also discuss what a respectful listener looks like, and how that looks different in music class.
Throughout second grade, I partially follow Feierabend's "Conversational Solfege" curriculum. I take certain aspects of the curriculum and combine it with my own ideas and games that make for an enriching curriculum.
I am excited to teach your students how to read, write, and play rhythms and to identify instruments this coming school year.
