Mrs. Amy West
Week 1: (March 30- April3)
Making Music with Family:
Teach your family one of the songs we have been working on in class! This link opens up a Google drive folder with the music we have been working on in music class recently. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10AXKMA32hYHJn5J4Szilmbr0Z5Jiw8Ks?usp=sharing
Week 2: (April 13-17)
Earth Day Drum!
Build a drum by reusing materials found around your home and yard. Decorate any way you want! (markers, stickers, paint, duct tape, etc.) You could even build an entire drumset if you are feeling especially creative! Empty Pringle and oatmeal oatmeal containers are some of my favorites to use for drums. Think about the type of sound you would like to create? Do you want a soft or loud sound? Do you want to use the container’s original lid, or maybe stretch out a balloon over the top? What will you use for your drumsticks? Make up some rhythms to play or play along while you sing your favorite song! This is a great musical activity for people of ALL ages. When you finish, feel free to email me a picture or video, and share on Twitter: @MrsWestMusic @RooseveltTigers and on our school’s PTA Facebook Page!
Week 3: (April 20-24)
Sing “Hey, Bunny” Use the link below to find both audio and lyrics to the song! Kindergartners know this song and motions from music class. Maybe you can find some bunny ears at home to wear while singing to make it extra cute and silly!
Music for Relaxation!
Select one of the videos linked below. While listening, take some deep breaths, close your eyes and imagine a peaceful scene, like maybe mountains, snowfall, or a sunset. Next, draw a picture of the scene you imagined using any materials you have!
This is a great musical activity for the whole family! When you finish, feel free to email me your picture, and share on Twitter: @MrsWestMusic and on our school’s PTA Facebook Page!
