The new school year has begun and we are looking forward to all of the great things we are going to learn this year. A lot of activities are scheduled and great learning will be taking place. September is one of my favorite months because it is the longest stretch of uninterrupted learning time. After labor day the next break will be for parent-teacher conferences in October, so this is when routines become solid and real learning takes place.
Be sure to check out the great links to the right of this post. There are some just for fun and some that are very good at reinforcing our learning.

The computer lab is a fun place for students to explore music. Many students have asked how they could play these games at home. Easy as pie! Just click on the scott music sites line to the right of this post and you will be taken to a place called trackstar. I have created this trackstar so that students can go to the nine sites listed without searching and accidentally ending up on a site that is not OK for children. Students can safely play the many games that are located at each site and the best part...THEY'RE LEARNING!!!

Fourth Grade Students and the Third Graders in Ms. Zismer's class will be learning to play recorders beginning in March. Each student is welcome to borrow a recorder from the school, however, you may also purchase one through the school at the great price of $5. This includes a storage bag, cleaning rod, neck strap and grease. We will be following the "Recorder Karate" program which will allow students to earn belts for their recorder by passing recorder tests. It is a fun challenge that allows everyone a chance to succeed at playing this simple and enjoyable instrument.
Lessons on the recorder help the students master the treble clef and fourth grade rhythms along with learning folk songs that align with the Missouri Grade Level Expectations.

The Kansas City Symphony kindly allowed us to reschedule the trip, which took place on Tuesday, February 3. The students were all dressed up and seemed to enjoy the show. The students will have a chance to express their feelings about the concert and discuss what they have learned through this experience. It should be interesting to see what they thought.
