The project sheet has all of the steps students should take listed IN ORDER. Students should have their songs completely written out by now, and they should have had their work checked by me. As we are completing components of the project I write down the grade on each student’s project sheet—for example the title is Write, Read, Sing, Play, so once a student successfully completes the “Write” part of the project (copying the music onto their sheet) I write a 3 on top of Write on their sheet.
- · Each component of the project is worth 3 points, and the reflection on the back is worth 3 points for a total of 15 points for the project (extra credit if they do an extra instrument, another language, or something extra with the project).
- · I have keyboards in my classroom that the students will use for the Play portion of the project, unless they have another melodic instrument at home they'd like to play (including band, orchestra, guitar, ukulele, etc). Don’t worry if your child doesn’t take lessons and/or if you do not have an instrument at home.
- · If your child needs coaching they may come by the Music room for help: Third Grade during lunch time on Thursdays (not March 3) or Fridays OR they could stay after school until 3:30pm on Mondays or Wednesdays. Fourth and Fifth Graders may come during lunch/recees or after school on Mondays or Wednesdays. Students who stay after school should be picked up at the carpool lane at 3:30pm. Be sure to send a transportation change to your child’s teacher if they plan to stay.
- · Please encourage your child to play/sing for me live instead of on video unless they are SURE all the parts are correct—if they perform live I can fix mistakes on the spot and get the check-offs over with quickly.
- · If your child has questions please check out this entire blog post first, because I think I’ve posted information that covers most questions here.
Below is a helper video. You should be able to find everything you need on this post!
Deadlines & Things to Note:
- Students may perform their project and turn in this Reflection & labeled song sheet any time between now and your Music class day during the week of March 1. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE DEADLINE to complete your performance parts! Start getting ready now!
- As we get closer to the deadline there will be limited class time available. If we run out of class time your child may need to come sing/play during lunch or recess.
- Students may submit their work via video, but a live performance is better so I can give immediate feedback and allow kids to keep polishing their work. I go by "Angry Bird Grading" for this project, so kids can keep trying until they receive 3 stars for each component.
- Don’t forget to turn in the Reflection and your labeled song sheet!
