Mama's Little Baby Loves Shortnin' Bread

We have been learning folk songs in music class at PDS. One of the students' favorite songs is "Shortnin' Bread".  After making a batch of it and letting the 3rd grade students try it, I discovered that it is also a favorite treat!

Sound Opposites

The students in the Eagles' Nest have been learning about sound opposites in music: fast-slow, high-low, loud-soft. They have also learned musical terms for these opposites. Below you will see puctures of 3k students shaking their shaker eggs and moving their feet to the tempo,  fast (presto) and slow (largo).
