    This week we will finish a unit on reading the notes in both the treble and bass clef staves. The students will review the letter names of the lines and spaces in the treble clef staff (E,G, B, D and F for the lines and F, A, C, E for the spaces) and the letter names of the lines and spaces in the bass clef staff (G, B, D, F, A for the lines and A, C, E, G for the spaces.) Then we will play Lines and Spaces Bingo. If time allows, they'll play a team relay game, racing up to the classroom whiteboard and drawing the line/space notes I tell them to.
    Our music style for this week is Film/TV Soundtrack. We will learn when and where it came about and learn about Randy Newman, a prolific Film/TV Soundtrack composer. Finally, we'll watch a video performance of one of his songs from "Monsters Inc."
