In 3rd grade this year, we've really been focusing on playing the Orff instruments (xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels) and learning the different melodic pitches of the major scale. We have been learning these elements through lots of American folk songs. In October, we learned a song called "Tideo." We're not sure who Tideo is, but in the song, he (or she!) is definitely on the move--passing windows all over town. This song helped us practice our melodic pattern of Mi-Re-Do, which we sang with our voices then put on the instruments. We also learned a fun folk dance done in two lines. Enjoy the pictures and videos of a 3rd grade class in action!
