Fourth Grade students are very excited to be engaged in their new recorder unit! Students are reviewing basic rhythmic patterns by rote and reading. They've learned their first three notes which will soon lead to the performance of simple songs. They are excited to be able to apply their reading skills and play on a brand new instrument which features fun (and sometimes squeaky) sounds. Fourth graders are looking forward to their May trip to Carnegie Hall where they will sing and play with children from across the city in the Link Up program.
