Singing the Blues

Today, in music class Mr. Lawton had the students doing a variety of blues-related activities. First, the students engaged in a game from the Georgia Sea Islands. They had a lot of fun with this!


Then he introduced a couple of classic blues songs to them like “Hound Dog” and the students both identified the elements of the genre and learned to feel the rhythm.


We also spent a lot of time discussing the math homework is preparation for today’s test. The student took the test this afternoon, but we will correct it tomorrow.

After the test, they had a lot of time to get started on the homework. So even though it may seem like a lot, most of them should have most of it done by the time they get home.

Homework:  (1) Write spelling words 6-10 five times each in cursive. Also write a sentence for each of these words. (2) Do “Making Inferences.” (3) Do “Determining Fact from Opinion.” (4) Do “Discovering Meaning Through Context.” (5) Do “Getting the Main Idea.” (6) Do the “Mining for Minerals” study sheet. Be sure to use the Science Resources text and to write in complete sentences. (7) Do “Comparing Fractions 2” worksheet.
