Welcome Back!

Happy August Manatee Families!

Summer is over and it's time to get back in to the swing of things!  There are going to be several changes in Ms. Orth's music classroom this year, including it turning into Mrs. Sall's music classroom after Winter Break (Yes...Ms. Orth is getting married!) 

End of Course Exams:

According to the state, most if not all classes, including activity classes, will be taking an end of course exam this year.  Middle School and High School classes had these last year, but now it is trickling down to the elementary level.  In order for students to prepare for these exams, they will be given mini assessments along the way to check their progress.  These exams will not count on their report card, however they will show how well Manatee Elementary students comprehend material taught in every subject. 

Notebooks:

To help guide students towards being successful, students in 2nd-6th grade will be asked to bring a notebook by the end of the first two weeks of school.  This information should have been seen on the school supply list that went home at the end of last year. 

- 2nd and 3rd graders need a primary composition book

- 4th, 5th, and 6th graders will need a 70 page wide ruled spiral notebook

These notebooks will be kept in the music classroom.  In these notebooks, students will write down important information needed to succeed in music this year.

Course Descriptions:

Here are course descriptions of what your student will be learning about in music based on their grade level:

KINDERGARTEN - students in music class explore their environment and music world through a variety of experiences.  Singing, listening, and movement activities will form the foundation for musical development, along with thinking, self-expression, and communication skills will be developed through singing, movement, creative musical play, creating, listening, and understanding activities. A variety of carefully chosen music will allow students to gain knowledge of one's self and build understanding, acceptance, and enrichment throughout their lives. By fostering creativity throughout the curriculum, the seeds of innovation will begin to bloom even in these novice learners.

FIRST GRADE - students in music class explore their world through listening, singing, moving, playing instruments, and creating to stimulate the imagination and lead to innovation and creative risk-taking. As they develop basic skills, techniques, and processes in music, they strengthen their music and extra-music vocabulary and music literacy, as well as their ability to remember, focus on, process, and sequence information. As students sing, play, move, and create together, they develop the foundation for important skills such as teamwork, acceptance, respect, and responsibility that will help students be successful in the 21st century.

SECOND GRADE - students in music class continue exploration of their world as they strengthen their musical skills, techniques, and processes. Student’s working vocabulary and musical literacy and understanding deepen with the ability to use unique musical language to communicate their own ideas. Connections with the arts and other disciplines allow students to transfer knowledge and skills to and from other fields of study. As students sing, play, move, and create together, they continue to build such important skills as teamwork, acceptance, respect, and responsibility that will help them be successful in the 21st century.

THIRD GRADE - students in music class explore their world by engaging in active learning processes to refine the skills, techniques, and processes of musicianship through such activities as improvisation and arranging. As they continue to develop their working music and cross-content vocabulary and become able to identify fundamental characteristics of musical structures, they demonstrate artistic growth through cognition and reflection and endeavor to use their own artistic voices to communicate ideas and inventions. They recognize the importance of cultural experiences in music throughout history and in emerging art forms. Music students examine the positive impact of the arts in society and practice creative risk-taking in preparation for contributive citizenship in the 21st century.

**Special Note: Students will be required to purchase a recorder from Ms. Orth later in the semester to begin learning how to play in the second half of the school year.  Recorders are $5.00 and come in blue, pink, or green.  More information to come.

FOURTH GRADE - students in music class explore artistic intent by investigating the inventive development of ideas, applying musicianship skills and techniques while engaging in the creation and interpretation of the arts. They analyze the characteristics of musical structures from simple to complex to build understanding and respect for the creative process. As they examine the significant cultural contributions in the arts throughout history, particularly in Florida, they become increasingly able to identify the connections among music and other fields of study. Music students also develop knowledge of careers in, and related to, the arts as they explore the impact of music on the local and global economies of the 21st century and strengthen personal skills for success throughout school and beyond.

Students are also eligible for participating in the Manatee Music Makers chorus in 4th grade.  If your student loves to sing, please have them get an application/permission form from Ms. Orth.

 **Special Note: Students will need their recorders for every music class.  If your student misplaced their recorder or is new to Manatee, please purchase one from Ms. Orth for $5.00.

FIFTH GRADE - students in music class develop and analyze the skills necessary for the critical assessment of artistic works and creative works in other contexts. They demonstrate the proficiency of comprehensive musicianship and interpretive skills in the arts, which allows them to explore manipulation of musical structures to represent a personal and creative form of artistic communication. As students become more musically sophisticated, they establish and document reciprocal relationships among music and other disciplines of study. They learn to transfer their music knowledge and innovative skills as a means of discovering the significant contributions of music and the arts, in general, to positive social development and global economic success in the 21st Century.

Students are also eligible for participating in the Manatee Music Makers chorus, and beginning orchestral strings program in 5th grade.  If your student loves to sing, please have them get an application/permission form from Ms. Orth.  The beginning strings class has already been formed due to students' interests in the program from a survey taken last year.  If your student is new to Manatee this year and is interested in learning an orchestral string instrument (violin, viola, cello, or string bass), please contact Ms. Orth and they will be put on a waiting list in case someone drops the class.

 **Special Note: Students will need their recorders for every music class.  If your student misplaced their recorder or is new to Manatee, please purchase one from Ms. Orth for $5.00.

SIXTH GRADE - students explore the essential elements of 20th- and 21st-century music in America (e.g., jazz, rock, soul, blues) and global cultures (e.g., Latin, Bollywood, European, Asian, world drumming). Students reflect on the significance of social influences and historical events on the development of music. Participants focus on the creation, use, and performance of music; and the modes of listening, distributing, and gaining access to music.

Students are also eligible for participating in the Manatee Music Makers chorus, and intermediate orchestral strings program in 6th grade.  The intermediate strings class is for anyone that has participated in a full year of beginning strings class.  More information to come on rehearsal schedules.  If your student loves to sing, or is eligible for the intermediate strings class, please have them get an application/permission form from Ms. Orth.

 **Special Note: Students will need their recorders for every music class.  If your student misplaced their recorder or is new to Manatee, please purchase one from Ms. Orth for $5.00.

I hope each and every one of you had an enjoyable summer and I look forward to seeing you during the first week back to school! J

Musically yours –

Ms. Orth
