Wallace 2015 "I Will DARE" K - 6th grades.

All three of my school's do this a bit differently but they all participate in DARE.  This school has the entire school come to the graduation during the school day and sing this song by Teresa Jennings as well as our national anthem.

I am so proud of them.  6th graders have their won part and the 3rd - 6th grade girls sing the descant during the final chorus.  I love it.

Come on over and see all of my schools as they share Music In Our Schools Month with our community! Each year, I take my 1st and 2nd graders to assisted living centers and to senior citizen meetings to share the joy of music.  Enjoy!

W.O.W. 2015

This video is about music vocabulary we learn during the year.  It is not ALL our music vocabulary but a good chuck of our staples.  It was made by my three classes of 5th graders who are housed in three separate schools within the same district.  It's fun forthem to see their friends from across town and how they performed their "Words of the Week!"  Kristin Lukow - music teacher.

Here is my newest creation for TPT.  I needed a teaching tool for memorizing the presidents of the United States.  I wanted to use Yankee Doodle as it was our first patriotic song.  This is the final product.  I'm pretty excited about it!!  I have always wanted to know all the presidents in alphabetical order.
