Music classes at MBES have been working towards earning karaoke parties for good behavior. As their note moves up the music staff, they get closer and closer to their party. When the note reaches the top line, it's party time!
At this point in the year, all classes have participated in their first karaoke parties, and I have heard some wonderful singing! The students enjoy singing familiar songs and listening to their friends perform. While they are having fun, they're actually meeting national music standards! The first NAfME standard says "Singing, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music." I have enjoyed hearing the students sing, and I look forward to the next round of karaoke parties!
