This week you should see a homework assignment come home from the music room. This is a rhythmic composition assignment where students needed to use previously learned information as well as the new rhythm of four 16th notes to complete. This was used as a summative assessment for 16th notes. After the work was performed with claps, we took our compositions to the xylophones and improvised a melody using the rhythm we wrote.
1. have your child perform it for you with light claps and rhythm language
2. sign the paper
3. make sure your student returns it to the music room for credit.
Thanks so much for your help with instruction reinforcement at home. Even this small chance to perform what they have written for you at home make a big impact.
I am also attaching a copy of the assessment to this email in case you do not see it come home. Please let me know if you have any questions.
