Hi RSE Students!
We made it to the last week of school! I think most of you know now that I am retiring this year. I will miss you all so much. I hope you have learned some things in music class and that you have enjoyed our music songs and activities. Please email me to say goodbye if you haven't done so. Love, Dr. Walker
5th Graders, please take a look at this presentation and consider joining one of the arts in middle school.
May 11: Here's a fun music/science activity for you--a musical xylophone made with glasses and water. Fill 7-8 glasses with different amounts of water. You can add food coloring to the water for more fun. Use a spoon to tap the glasses and make a song. The more water you put in a glass the lower the pitch will be.
I really miss seeing all of you. I've added some hilarious old cartoons with classical music for you to watch this week. Keep trying these links and websites and you can let me know what you think.
I've had some great music creations sent to me from the game "Isle of Tune". It's under the games for March 31. Give it a try, students love this! Email Dr. Walker
