Third grade Trip to the Lexington Symphony

20130118-092636.jpg

Yesterday I was thrilled to be able to take our third graders to a live orchestra performance! Through the generosity if both the BEF and the Pine Glen PTO, this trip was absolutely free for the students! We enjoyed music from classical masters Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, and of John Williams, the composer of Star Wars! We also learned a lot about the instruments of the orchestra as well as how it has evolved over the centuries. It was truly a wonderful day and we are hoping to go again next year! Here are some photos from our trip. Enjoy!

Note Name Practice Apps

I recently shared some great Apps for note name practice with the third graders.  Everyone can benefit from some note name practice so I thought I would post them for all to see.

DoReMemory:$.99 Learn your notes by placing them correctly ont he staff.

Note Squish:$.99 Learn your notes in a Whack-A-Mole style game!

Treble Cat:$3.99 Its pricey, but this app really teaches you each note and progressively gets harder as you go through the levels.

 Enjoy!
