This week in Latin students will begin practicing a song for their spring music concert. This song is called “Ecce Caesar Nunc Triumphat” (Caesar’s Triumph). The song is set to the same meter as “My Darling Clementine” and “Ode to Joy”. Parts of the lyrics were sung at Julius Caesar’s Triumph in 45 B.C.E. Students will also learn classroom vocabulary.
Students will continue to practice their concert repertoire. This is the third week of our World Music Unit; each class will begin to create their own STOMP rhythm routine for the spring showcase. Fun fact: many of the musical and literary aspects in the Disney film The Lion King were drawn directly from African traditions. If you have not seen this movie, it is one of my favorites. I recommend watching it. Students will continue to learn “Shenendoah,” one of our 2-voice-part concert songs. There are recordings of each student’s voice part that have been sent home. Each mp3 distinguishes if it is high voice singing, or low voice singing, or both. Your student should know if they are singing high or low voice. Please allow your student to listen to these tracks frequently at home or in the car. As a forewarning, my friend and I that recorded are both men singing in a child’s register, and so the tracks may sound a little silly at first.
This week in Art, students will continue to work on their one point perspective drawings of hallways. Students will be adding color with crayons and paint this week. Also, Please join us for the annual Spring Art Show on Thursday, April 18 from 5:30-8:00 pm which will exhibit art work from students in grades 1-5.
