Mrs. Crase - Classroom Spotlight

We are off to a colorful and musical start this year in elementary music and art!! Here are some of the many exciting things we have accomplished so far!

 

In music we started off the year by reviewing how to feel steady beat along with reading music notation and dynamic values! We are now working on music for our Christmas concert! The theme for the concert this year is "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and we are very eager to share that with you on November 29th!  We have had a great time learning our music and we are starting to learn how to use certain instruments (tone chimes, boomwhackers, claves, etc.) It's been a great start to the year!

 

In art, every grade has completed at least one project so far! First grade completed a Frida Colla Watermelon piece learning about the complexity of using scissors and gluing objects to a background. Second grade studied James Rizzi and his use of color and animation in a piece! Third Grade worked with tempera paint and oil pastel to create a folk art inspired barn piece! Fourth grade is currently working on their Dia de Los Muertos sugar skull inspired masks and they are really enjoying it!!!! Fifth grade completed a Georgia O'Keefe inspired leaf project which you can find hanging on the walls in FGS! They have now moved on to studying weaving in different cultures and made a clay weaving frame! We started weaving last week and even though it takes a lot of concentration, we are really enjoying it!!

 

We are very excited to accomplish many more things in music and art this year!!!
