It's Recorder Time

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.
