March 21, 2019: "A Lion's Share of Melodies": A Grade 2 Performance for Parents
During second semester of 2019, second grade students worked steadily on a major collaborative project – creating lyrics and melodies to express a story represented by Lion sculptures. In groups of 4-6, students used skills in language arts to create a storyboard and then took steps to compose two balanced phrases that rhyme. After improvising a melody to fit their lyrics, the new melody was recorded on a Chromebook. Students notated the melodies and played their melodies on xylophones. I was impressed with their ingenuity! Parents were invited to a special in-school concert, given by our second graders at the conclusion of the semester unit.
