How to Use This Page

This page contains a "menu" of lessons and activities for this week's learning at home. You will find the objectives: the specific skills that your child will be able to do. Then you will find a selection of lessons and activities which help your child master those skills. If you run into technical issues or other difficulties with any of these, simply move on and choose another. These activities fit into the Sample Dailly Schedule.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Your child DOES NOT have to complete all activities listed for each subject.

Lesson Instructions:


  • Watch the video of me reading the book and follow along. Do you hear these 4 patterns?
  • Up, up, up, up, up fall down.  This is a 5-note ascending scale, and then we fall down with a descending glissando!
  • Up, up, up, up, up, up, up, UUUUP.  This is a full ascending major scale
  • Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. This is a descending major scale.
  • Ow, ouch, ow, ouch, ow, ouch! In the background, do you hear the “crunchy” notes on the piano? Those notes are dissonant.


  • Watch again, and sing with me! Can you move your body in a way that shows whether the notes are ascending or descending?


  • If you’re still having fun, check out the extension activities!

Major Scale- a set of 8 notes that go in order of their pitch.
