In second grade we are practicing our new rhythm: the half note! We are also prepping for our next rhythm...but it's a secret for now. The process of Kodaly is to prepare, present, and practice. For our new secret rhythm, we are still in the prepare phase. Meaning I don't tell the students what it is just yet until we do multiple songs, games, and other activities to visually, aurally/orally, and kinesthetically experience it first!
Melodically, we know how to place la, sol, and mi on the music staff and how to sing them by ourselves. We are working on our new solfege pitch which, for right now, we are calling "low."
