2017 W.O.W. 5th Grade Students of Kristin Lukow

5th grade students are tested over music vocabulary each year. This is one of the ways we review!
We are missing melody and harmony in this movie but I promise they know them!  We take a pre-test and post-test each year and if they raise their class average by 10 points, I have them a whole music class of recess.  Class #1 went from a 69% to a 92% so they are going to play!  The other two classes have yet to take their tests.  We shall see!!

I do believe we have a deficit in our country, a deficit of enthusiasm.  Perhaps not in all things.  Some are enthusiastic about favorite sports teams but in my humble view, we are lacking enthusiasm for the simple pleasures in life, the important things. Friendship.  Family.  Faith. Learning.  We seem to sometimes take an apathetic view of the things that matter most while embracing those things which ultimately make no difference.  Families, I encourage you to love each other well and experience life with joy!  Model enthusiasm and enjoy life together!

Kyrie 3: Improv

This is why we bounce basketballs in music.  Rhythm is everywhere.
