Curriculum and Instruction
Instruction is based on the SC State Academic Standards for the Visual and Performing Arts. Instruction will be provided in music class once a week for 50 minutes and online through Google Classroom. Since the schedule does not allow multiple classes each week, assignments will be posted on Google Classroom for students to do with an option to complete them outside of class each week. Class time will be allotted to complete the assignments if they do not have access at home. Students also have access to Chromebooks in their homeroom classroom where they can work on their assignments during designated times.
South Carolina has provided Quaver Music as a curriculum resource. This will be used along with Spotlight on Music (McGraw-Hill) and other resources to support music instruction. Quaver Music makes use of interactive online lessons and activities that students can access from home on any device.
The music curriculum is divided into three-week modules with an assessment every three weeks. Please make sure your child is prepared for the assessment by completing assignments posted on Google Classroom. You may view assignments on this page by clicking the “view class calendar” link above.
Recorder Instruction will take place throughout the school year. Please bring a recorder to music class. All third grade students will be provided with a recorder. Fourth and fifth grade students should still have their recorder from last year. If your child has lost his recorder, you will be able to order another one from the school for $3.00. Order forms and information will be made available upon request.
You may visit www.odogy.com for recorder songs and help. The Quaver Music website also has recorder resources and songs which can be accessed by clicking “Student Interactives” from the Quaver Music website.
Student login on Chromebooks is the same as their school login. The username is firstname.lastname@example.org. The password is their first name and their lunch number all lowercase and no spaces.
