Ms. McDonough's UA Class: Week of 2/15-2/19

K - 2 Activities

Let’s play a movement game with our solfege signals.

Let’s make our waist be “MI”
Let’s make our knees be “RE”
Let’s make our toes be “DO”
Let’s make our shoulders be “FA”
Let’s make our head be “SOL”


Join Mrs. Moldoff in the activity below!

Watch this video to learn how you can make your own musical scale out of water glasses.  You can create your own solfege songs.   Please make sure you have an adult with you when you are using water in glasses to make your scale!

3 - 5 Activities

Theme and Variations - Let’s create a video!


Today I’d like you to go back and watch our first video on theme and variations:

Can you come up with two more ways of singing the song in the video?

“Theme and Variations, it’s like a conversation, where I keep saying, keep replaying the same thing, just to change it up again.”


Now it’s time to make a screencastify video. 
Please choose a song you know…...maybe…..Jingle Bells or any holiday song, Happy Birthday, A nursery rhyme (not Twinkle) etc.  Please try to perform it two different ways.   Make a recording of you singing it correctly and then with the two different variations.  If you like how it comes out, share it with your family or another friend in remote learning.  Save it to share with your music teacher when you come back to school.  Have fun!
Watch the video below to remind you how to make a screencastify video.
