Staci Kelly Pendry

Pre- K and Kindergarten
  We are working on developing a love for music!  Students have started their first rotation on the xylphones and metalophones and are starting to feel the steady beat.

1st grade
  We are working on singing and playing the xylphones while counting out loud to ten.  We are also working on listening to and playing as a group.

2nd/3rd grade
  We are learning about high and low on the xylophones and metalophones.  We are reviewing correct mallet technique along with working to make a beautiful sound as an ensemble.

  We just took our begining of the year pre-test for music.  They will take the same exam at the end of the year to show the growth they have made this year.  Our first lesson will focus on the language of music, decoding and understanding the names of the lines and spaces of the treble clef staff,
