Vocal Explorations, the Red Baron, and Vince Guaraldi…. Oh My!

Last week, 2nd and 3rd graders will be exploring the high/low ranges of their voices by creating “Vocal Explorations” as Snoopy chases the Red Baron through the blue skies. First, students will be introduced to vocal explorations, then, they will repeat several vocal patterns I will give them on the board, and then, they will create THEIR OWN pattern and sing them together with classmates in small groups.

 

This week, students will be reviewing basic information about Vince Guaraldi and will complete a listening exercise based upon his famous work, “Linus and Lucy”. We will also listen for his music (Linus and Lucy and The Great Pumpkin Waltz, in particular).
