During First Quarter all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will complete the Music Flashcard Project
Music Projects are always accepted any time up until the deadline on the day you come to Music. Early projects are always appreciated and earn extra points. Late projects lose 3 points for every school day (not just the Music day) the work is late. Music project grades ALWAYS include the project itself AND the completed Project Sheet.
Students will officially have 4-5 weeks to complete this work. Students should plan to work on quarterly Music projects for about 30 minutes a week. It's best to plan your Music workday the same day as Music class. Students may work with other students in their grade level.
The flashcard project is an opportunity for students to develop better dictionary and paraphrasing skills, learn music vocabulary, practice using a straight edge to draw a staff, and create a toolbox that will help them learn proper music terminology, symbols, and notes on a staff.
Students: When you write your definitions please don't put the vocabulary word into the definitions.
You may use a blank: _____ means the steady pulse in music.
If you have already finished, an easy way to disguise the word in the definition is just use black crayon to color over the word (Sharpie bleeds through the card).
You can use any online kids' Music dictionary:
- Classics for Kids
Check out the Line and Space Note Tutorial Video:
Fifth Graders will have reversible cards--from one direction they will be Treble Clef cards, and Bass Clef when turned the other way.
Treble Clef: Line notes (from bottom to top): E-G-B-D-F Space notes: F-A-C-E
Bass Clef: Line notes (from bottom to top): G-B-D-F-A Space notes: A-C-E-G
On the answer side be sure to show if the answer is for Treble or Bass Clef
TIPS:If Fourth and Fifth Graders have their cards from last year they may re-use them if they are in good condition and meet the requirements for your grade level.
