5th Grade General Music
In 5th grade music, students experience and participate in a variety of activities that incorporate many musical genres, cultures and time periods. A typical music class time could include some or all of the following: rhythmic and/or melodic reading and practice; participation in singing games or dances; playing and creating music on classroom instruments; listening and evaluating various pieces of music; using technology as an additional outlet for music learning, creating and practice. My goal for my students is that they grow in their academic understanding of music but that ultimately they leave my classroom with a love of and appreciation for music.
