I am so excited about the coming year and all the fun things we will learn in General Music and Choir!
I teach 5th Grade General Music during the school day. We sing, play games, learn how to sight read and rhythm read, folk dance, and play instruments. There will be no homework assignments in General Music. Our class is based on active participation in all activities. There will be worksheets and evaluations during the nine weeks to assess each student's progress in learning the musical concepts being taught.
The Mithcell Choirs:
The Mitchell Mixed Choir is comprised of both 5 & 6 grade students. All are welcome to join. At our first rehearsal, I will send each child home with a choir packet. Please fill out the Member Info sheet AND PLEASE add your child's CISD ID number for me! There is a $30
Activity fee to join choir which covers the cost of music and transportation to our various events!
