Note Reading Games:


Try this rhythm warm-up. You may not need to, but click "yes" if it asks you to enable editing, and then you can click on the rhythms and move the rhythms around.  Use the rhythms to create a warm-up for yourself. You can play open strings or add fingers. If you do not have your instrument, you can still clap the rhythms, shadow bow, or use found items as percussion.
Re-arrange the rhythms.pptx.

The songs found in your music packet for home learning are here.  I will try to include as many video and listening files as I can.  Check on Class Dojo/Micosoft Teams for any assignments.  Message Ms. Baser on Class Dojo with any questions you have.
