Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grade:
We have been discussing how to make musical instruments from normal everyday items. For example, you could make maracas made from an empty paper towel roll with rice or beans inside and cloth at both ends held on with rubber bands. Please be creative, the more imaginative the better! It would be really neat if the instrument can actually be played!
Students will get a chance to share their homemade instrument with the class by telling how they made it and then playing it for the class. Have some fun with your child; this is a project that you can work on together! Please have your child bring their instrument to school when we come back in January.
