    Music

     

    I enjoyed reading your responses from last week and learning how creative you can be finding things at your house to make sounds.  You are going to be even more creative this week by making your own song!  Keep sharing your musical adventures from home through photos and videos when you have a chance.  I always love hearing from you!

     

    Activity for May 11 - 14

    This week you are going to be using the Chrome Music Lab Song Maker to make your own song!  The activity directions are in a Google slide show that has 4 pages.  It can be found using either of these links:  Google version (best) or PDF version.   When you are finished, please complete this form (also included on the Google slide) to share your song and tell me about it.  If you have any questions or need help with this, send a question through Google Chat or have a parent email me at TLMootz@d47.org

     

    5th Grade Musical (photos and videos due Friday, May 15)

    To ensure your child has time to complete an Art, P.E., Music, and STEM activity each week, there will not be an LMC (library) task assigned.  Rather, Miss Pearl encourages you to visit her website (https://www.d47.org/Page/1971) for ideas to promote reading in your home. 

     

    Additionally, Miss Pearl will continue to offer storytime through a ZOOM meeting.  Students may choose to attend either the Tuesday OR Thursday session for their grade level.

    You have two options this week:

    You can design by drawing or making an Earth-friendly sneaker.  You will see possible supplies and ideas on this link:

    https://pbskids.org/designsquad/build/sneaker-challenge/

    Can you wear your sneaker design inside or outside?  Do they stay on your feet?

     

    Or you can design something that reminds you of your time spent at West or elementary school.  Can you make it STEMy?  You can use materials to build it or be techy.  Maybe it’s making a new logo for West or STEM?  Maybe it’s an iMovie or a video? This is an out of box thinking project.  I have not done this before but I know you are so creative.

    You can share your designs in Google Classroom STEM in Flipgrid or an image into a Google Document or email me at tawolf@d47.org.

     

    I can’t wait to see how creative and out of the box you think about this week’s STEM challenge!




    Thanks and have a great day!

    We are going to take a break from coding this week!  We are going to go down memory lane!  We are going to rebuild one of your favorite STEM projects at home!  Examples:  cooler, seed spreader, doghouse, tiger challenge, egg bumper car, model treehouse, paper chair, model bridge or maybe you are thinking of another one.  I can’t wait to see what you will try now that you are older and wiser.  You may share your projects in Flipgrid in our Google Classroom or email me at tawolf@d47.org.  I can’t wait to see what you will rebuild.  Feel free to test how well it works also!  I will have more information in our Google Classroom.  If you do not have available supplies for a rebuild, you can draw me a detailed picture with labels on paper or in Google Drawing.  You can share your image with me a few different ways in Google Classroom either through Google Doc or Flipgrid.

    Have fun, think out of the box and be creative!  I can’t wait to see your re-designs.  I have always wanted to do this project with 5th graders but never have had the time.  

    Enjoy!
