Grade 1 Music

Page history last edited by Jodi Craigen 1 year, 4 months ago

Hi Grade 1's!!


Here is a fun video you can play along with. It is called a Samba which is a style of music that comes from South America. All you need is a pot or pan and 1 or 2 wooden (or metal but it will be louder) spoons


Parents: You can skip to 2:00 to just start the song. (They explain their plan in several languages from the beginning up to 2 minutes)







Fun with Composers has created some video lessons. Here is a fun one for you to check out that has the rhythms we've been working on this year!





Sing songs. Some ideas for French and English singers/playlists you can check out are listed below.


  • French singers you can look up on Youtube:
    • Carmen Campagne
    • Jacques Chenier
    • Suzanne Pinel

    • Alain le Lait



  • English singers you can look up on Youtube:

  • Listen and journal/respond to a variety of styles and selections of music PrimaryMusicListeningWorksheet.pdf
  • Practice moving to music: Dance, walk, skip, explore; there are so many great ways to use your body to respond to music
  • Create: Sing or play along with instruments (ones at home or create your own) and make up some catchy tunes :)
