The third graders are finally ready to start working on recorder karate. For the first week of the month, they will be reviewing how to read notes, as I expect most students will forget their recorders at home and it provides a nice ease into the new year after a long break.
Starting the second week of January, the third graders will start learning how to play their White Belt Song, Hot Cross Buns. Since they learned a much more difficult song for the holiday concert, I assume they will learn Hot Cross Buns quite quickly.
Once I have noticed that most of the students understand and can play Hot Cross Buns, I will start testing each one of them individually and if they pass, they will earn their first recorder karate belt!
This is a very busy time in third grade music, I hope your child is excited to be earning their first karate belts!
