We will be playing games and instruments in this melodic camp. Using patterned text from children's songs and poems, we will actively "do music" while gaining stronger literacy skills. You will experience many literacy components such as syllabication, phonics, and rhyming. We will use pictures and context clues to decode new vocabulary. Using speech as the basis of rhythm, we will create our own rhymes to share. The camp will culminate in the sharing of a musical performance by the students.
