4th Grade Music

‚Äč4th Grade Music

Fourth grade music will develop an understanding of the pentatonic scale, vocal ostinatos and transferring knowledge to reading of the Treble Clef. Music literacy sequence is taught, included learning letter names and proper music terminology. Student will add to music form including rondo and theme and variations. Further study of the Soprano Recorder is the primary focus of the year. The students will perform in the Spring Festival of the Arts on Friday, June 1st.

On this page you will see subpages:
-Recorder Practice Calendars
-Music for 4th Grade Recorders
-mp3's for 4th Grade Recorders
Please download the material in each of these pages. The Calendars and the Music should be stapled into your child's notebook. The mp3's are to be used for home practice. Your child should practice 6 days per week and 10 to 15 minutes per practice period. This is to be recorded on the calendar. For example: If your child practices 5 minutes on Thursday, Sept. 21st, he or she should write in "5 minutes". You must initial every day your child practices. Your child will be turning the calendar in every week during class time to me for a grade. Please make sure that your child is keeping up. Children who fall behind hold up the rest of the class. Your child will feel a strong sense of accomplishment when he or she receives a star for a job well done! 
It is extremely important that your child bring home their notebooks and recorders for practicing. This, however, can create a problem. They often do not remember to bring their notebook and recorder back to school on Music Class days. I strongly urge you to purchase an additional recorder that may remain at home. Children who attend class without their materials receive a "0" for the day. This can be a problem. Please help your child to meet with success in Music Class. This will be a great year!

An important reminder: No child is permitted to enter back into a classroom after dismissal. This is not a new policy. Perhaps some have merely forgotten. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will Ms. Fran permit a child to go back to a classroom once dismissal is completed. Please advise your child.
