Our 2nd grade students have been thoroughly enjoying our return to SINGING in music class! They sing to say "good morning", they sing to play games, they sing to create stories, and they even sing to line up and say goodbye. They have been exploring their 4 different voices; singing, talking, whispering and calling. In the video below, you can see some brave students volunteer to lead the class in our welcome song. Talking and singing are welcome voice choices in this call and response song. It's been exciting to hear students singing more and more in their upper register which usually allows for better pitch matching at this age. This routine greeting also allows them to practice their best audience manners complete with raucous applause and some fantastic bows.
