Week of February 22-26, 2016

This week in my classes we have introduced Orff instruments to the students on varying levels. We have continued to identify the correct bells that had to be chosen. 
We learned what an ostinato was. Students were able to identify the definition of it and create their own examples of an ostinato on their own bodies.This week we played the bells C and G. Students were also introduced to the ostinato pattern for the rhythm sticks. We tried combining both the bell pattern and the rhythm stick pattern while Mr. Jones sang the song.
