A little bit about the music classroom:
In music class students will sing, move, listen, imitate, explore, experience, analyze, classify, create, share, perform, notate, read, improvise, cooperate, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!! We strive to create innovative, engaging lesson plans which include singing, playing instruments, and moving in each of our lessons. Music is important here at Dolvin Elementary. Studies show that students who receive music perform better on tests involving reading, math, problem solving, and logical thinking.

As an exciting way to send off, the Music Tech Team (MTT) hosted their final podcast series of the year spotlighting unit 4, form and timbre, as well as featured guest interviewee Mr. Tim Corrigan, the Fulton County Northeast Learning Community Area Superintendent of Schools! The students and I had a wonderful time getting to know more about Mr. Corrigan as well as hear about how involved music is in his life and career. This is a feature you don't want to miss!

We are excited to announce the 3rd grade musical, "Dig It", is back and running! I will be placing a link to lyrics and audition scripts for students to practice at home. The show will be Oct. 18th. Auditions will be held within the next two weeks. Be looking for practice papers!
2nd graders will be working on their musical, "Spaced Out", to align with their 2nd grade science curriculum. We will also hold auditions within the next few weeks. Paperwork will come home with your children based on their interest in particular part assignments. The date for the show will be November 1st.
Kindergarten and 1st graders will be playing instruments, games, and performing folk dances to internalize steady beat and differentiate between beat and rhythm. We will be moving into reading and writing basic rhythmic notations over the course of the month. Ask Me Cards (or notes via Seesaw) will be coming home soon!
You may not have noticed, but due to the 10-day count, we lost one day of Mr. Denney. I will be updating the schedule soon, but have picked up 3 more classes; therefore, Class Dojo and Seesaw have not yet really kicked off. It is my intention to get the new classes loaded and running as soon as possible so you may begin seeing all of the wonderful things we are doing in class. In addition, you may have noticed a silence on social media. That is because I was waiting on the media release forms to be submitted. Now that all forms have been properly assessed, I hope to post pictures and videos of student work beginning this week!
Speaking of posting! My Music Tech Team hopes to have their first podcast up and running this week with a special interview with new Dolvin principal, Karen Cooke! The kids are so excited and we hope you will be too! Check back for updates!
