Thank you, thank you, thank you Alward parents for supporting the purchase of 32 ukuleles with a unanimous vote for our Alward music department. Your vote will also include the purchase of a beautifully hand crafted wooden cart, 32 instrument bags and a tuner for daily ‘tune ups’. The ukulele will add great value to our room and musical experiences. We at Alward appreciate everything you do for our school and our little tigers. Thank you again. (We are so excited.)

Here is a practice video for the Twelve Days of Christmas! Try to see what kind of ideas you can get from this sample.
In November, all grades will continue to learn and practice more of their holiday program repertoire. During this month, students will also have the opportunity to audition for a variety of special parts and learn most of the choreography for each song. We are getting closer to our December 8th concert. How exciting!
Now that we have organized our classroom environment, secured our new seats and found our beautiful singing voices, it’s time to begin preparing for our Holiday program. October will be full of steady beat song/game experiences, melody singing high/low activities and Holiday rehearsal. Don’t worry! We will also squeeze in fall holiday songs, games and drama activities. Happy fall.
Welcome back, friends. September will be a month to get acquainted with our room, new seats and some new friends. We will try to find our singing voices again with the help of games, songs and activites focusing on high and low melodies. Let’s play.
Here are the numbers and the song that plays as you will move through the various lights and colors on the light wand.
