Music with Isabella

Today we had music with Isabella. We started our lesson with the hello say your name song. Then we practiced our E notes. After, students played two notes and tried to sing their names. Then we played a game where we had to recognize when the cuckoo (G+E notes) came out and sing cuckoo! Last we sang the Simple Simon song which was about a man going to the fair.
