Second graders will continue their exploration of music by reinforcing and reviewing 1st grade vocabulary such as:

Beat vs. Rhythm

Is Beat steady and strong?  Is Rhythm short and long?
Students will explore keeping the beat with various instruments such as rhythm sticks, boomwhackers, and hand drums.
Students will play the "Do You Know My Friends At School?" game.
We will discover how to write our names in rhythms that we just clapped.  

Pitch - How high, medium, or low a note is.  
We will play the do, mi, sol children game. 
Students will be encouraged to sing with hand signs.
Students will learn the song, "Do, Re, Mi" and watch the clip from the Sound of Music where Maria teaches about melody.
