Remote Learning Assignments
Week 5 (4/20/20):
I am giving everyone an extra week to complete any unfinished work from the last 4 weeks’ assignments. I know that schooling from home can be stressful and that I did assign a bit too much for the first month (thank you for your patience!). Take this time to work on past assignments - if you have already finished, you may watch any of the extra videos I’ve posted or review information about the Instrument Families.
Week 6 (4/27/20):
Musical Scavenger Hunt! This week, you will go on a little scavenger hunt in your own homes. Your goal is to find some “instruments” at home that make different sounds (anything can be an instrument - pots and pans, wooden blocks, tin cans)! On a piece of paper, write down what you find and send it to Ms. Evans via Dojo or email ([email protected]). Here’s your list:
Find something in your house that:
Makes a steady beat
Makes a very high sound
Makes a very low sound
You can shake to make sound
You can hit to make sound
You can scrape to make sound
Doesn’t make any sound at all no matter what you do with it
Makes a long sound
Makes a short sound
Makes your favorite sound!
Week 7 (5/4/20):
Create your own instrument! Use any household items you may have (paper plates, rice, toilet paper tubes, yarn, rubber bands, etc.) to make your own instrument. Please send Ms. Evans a picture or video of you playing your new instrument (Dojo or email [email protected]).
