Hi 5th Grade!
I am not posting any new assignments this week, as I have not yet received last week's assignment from most students. I know this has been a big adjustment for everyone so I'm sure you can use a catch up week. For your convenience, last week's assignment can be found below and in Google Classroom. The only part of the assignment that has to be subitted to me is under the header "Write About Rhythm". It can be emailed or submitted directly through Google Classroom. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
Hi 5th Grade! I have set up a Google Classroom for you to post your "Write About Rhythm" assignment as well as any other assignment that you will have in the future. Here is the code for you to join:mt7pu2v

Write about Rhythm (New Due Date 4/3/20)
Think about your favorite music. What types of rhythms are you drawn to? Do you like hip hop beats? Rock? Slower, relaxing songs? Something you can dance to? What does that music and rhythm say about your identity? Explain your answers in two to three paragraphs. Please submit this assignment on Google Classroom.
Create Your Own Rhythms
Use this site (https://musiclab.chromeexperiments.com/Rhythm/) to explore different combinations of sounds to produce an endless variety of rhythms. Remember that in class, we’ve been representing steady beats with hearts or by tapping our laps. This site represents steady beats by using vertical lines. Notice that each set of characters (use the arrows to toggle between characters) has a different number of steady beats per measure. Here’s the breakdown:
Monkeys- 3 steady beats
Turquoise Monsters- 4 steady beats (this one will sound the most familiar to you)
Light Blue Monsters- 5 steady beats
Birds- 6 steady beats
Try using the turquoise monsters to create the following rhythms:
