It is such a delight to see all of the connections your child is making from the audio tracks to what we are learning in class! They will have their line and space notes learned in no time!
This week add the flat, sharp, and natural signs to your flashcards. While you are at it, be sure to ask your child to show you a flat, sharp, or natural with their bodies and voices! Challenge your child to practice their flashcards every day.
Homework: p. 22–23 Students match notes on the staff to the keyboard.

Your student is now ready to recognize rhythm notation using 'real' note names and counting terms. This song will help keep that fun!
Get inspired from one of the very first Let's Play Music graduates! She graduated from her 3rd year of Let's Play Music back in 2001 , and look at her 12 years later!
For my convenience, I have preloaded content for the whole semester. I will update each future post with specific time-sensitive info before I send the link each week. If you choose to read ahead you might see details that don’t apply to your child’s class. For this reason I do not recommend reading ahead. Thank you!
