You should already be familiar with the letter names of the treble clef staff. It would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the note names of the bass clef, especially if you plan on playing a bass instrument in 6th grade! Don't forget to change my name to your name!
The following Nearpod activity will take you on an adventure with Mozart. (You will be asked to enter your name- please enter your name on the top line and your homeroom teacher on the bottom line.) You will first take a Google Tour of Mozart's birthplace, Vienna, Austria. Once you visit different important places in the city, you will be able to explore the 4 instrument families of the orchestra with Adobe Spark and experience some of Mozart's most famous compositions. Nearpod will ask you to answer some questions. Please don't worry about spelling! The end of the presentation will prompt you to make a presentation on what you've learned with Chatterpix- don't worry about this! We'll create some fabulous presentations when we get back together at Chalker.

Just in case you haven't had a chance to finish up your project, here's the link to the site.

If you were using Canva or Adobe Spark, you should be able to access your project when you log into your account.
We are preparing to record our storybook podcasts now that the iPads have been re-imaged. Please bring your chosen picture books with you to class, along with headphones/earbuds.
We have so many fun things to look forwards to!
