Ms. McDonough's UA Class: Week of 10/12 - 10/16

K - 2 Activities

Over the last few weeks with Miss McDonough you have practiced keeping a steady beat. A steady beat is the pulse of the music. You can have both fast steady beats, and slow steady beats. The word for speed in music is called tempo.

We have words for different speeds in music! Watching the video below, what do you think the word for very fast in music is? What is the word for very slow?


Follow all of the motions of the video below! What parts of it are presto? What parts are largo?

Story Time!

​​​​​​This story has one character who moves presto, and one character who moves largo. See if you can figure out who each one is!
