Cut the Cake

Cut the Cake

 

Second graders were really hungry, so we “Cut the Cake.”
 
 
 
First we started off with a fun game about cake. Since it was such a nice day, we played the game outside.

 
 
Then we reviewed quarter rest, quarter note, and eighth note.
 
 
 
 
Next we read the book, A Cake All for Me, written by Karen Magnuson Beil
 
 
 
Then, we talked about measurements and applied this to music.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Finally, we got out the hand drums and practiced rhythms from these "cake" rhythm cards that I created.

 
 
As the students were leaving, I told them to go home and eat some cake!

Updated Version of My Life

A lot has changed in the last time I posted. I took a long break from social media, but now I am back and ready to share. I teach elementary music at North Lamar ISD. I was recently married on December 29th, 2014. I have three daughters and am expecting in August. Life couldn't be any better :)

Courtney's Clem, a Baby Shower

Of the forty weeks of pregnancy, I am glad to say that I am down to my last three. A few weekends ago my mom and aunt gave me a shower, welcoming Clementine Malone (Clem). I thought I would share some photos for those of you who still try to keep up with me even though I no longer have Facebook or Instagram.
