The end of the year round school year is a time when I try to do lots of really fun, silly and even crazy stuff, since the kids are feeling and acting crazy. Their traditional friends and siblings are into summer and they are ready for it to be their turn. Keeping focus it difficult!
For my students, Fourth grade is a year rife with note reading due to recorders. This activity can be done AFTER they have learned Recorder Karate songs, or earlier in the year as a way to introduce them to those songs BEFORE starting recorders.
