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.

2nd Graders - NEW! Edmodo...

Dear 2nd grade students and parents,

I have created a group on www.edmodo.com for second grade students to join at your convenience.  At this point we have music lyrics and mp3's uploaded for student practice covering the upcoming musical.  I also copies of important documents and dates listed on the website.  I feel this is a valuable resource to aid in communication as well as prepare your child for our upcoming performance.   Please follow the directions below to join our group!

Go to www.edmodo.com.  If you already have an account, please log in and click on the "join" link on the left column.  It is here that you simply enter the code oibcs0.  I will leave this code online on this page for one week before I take it down.  If you do not have a free account, please click on "I'm a Student" and fill out the form.  Please include the group number listed above.  This ensures that you join the correct group.  Continue to check as this page may include several updates.  Your child will have access to music and lyrics to practice from at home.  If you are a parent and would like to connect to our page, a separate code is listed that will connect you to your child.  Please e-mail me directly if you are interested in obtaining this personal code or you may find it listed on the left column of your student's page upon log in.  You may only access this code once your child has completed the sign up process. 

As usual, please e-mail me if you have questions! endicott@fultonschools.org I look forward to this new added way of communication.  Also, please consider subscribing or following this blog to constant contact.

Thank you,
Megan Endicott
