Elementary News and Notes
The students in Xeng Jasiczek’s 4th-grade classroom study fractions in math. They then studied music notes and connected how music and math are connected using fractions (whole note = 4 beats, then half notes are 2 parts of the whole note and equals 2, etc.) The students then wrote their own songs using notes on a scale. Finally, they used GarageBand to record their songs. Students were able to choose an instrument working on holding notes for a certain number of beats.
