Music with Isabella. 

  • Today we had music with Isabella. First we sang the say your name song. Students played the xylophone as they sang their names. Then we practiced our long and short rhythms. We learned that Ta is a long rhythm and Ti-ti is a short and fast rhythm. Isabella showed us the music notes that represented Ta and Ti-Ti. At the end of music class, we sang our goodbye song very quietly.
