3rd grade students are learning to read and write notes on two lines of music: Sol and Mi. Classes also added La above the Sol line as their reading skills improved. After some practice, students composed short pieces on pitches Sol, Mi and La. The words they put with their song finished the phrase "I am Thankful for....". We took these pieces and practiced the job of arranging music. Students chose the order in which their group would play the song and then practiced and performed their piece for the class. It was fun to watch them enjoy the jobs of composer, conductor, arranger, and performer!
