Bloom-Carroll Intermediate School
Specials - Fourth Quarter
Art - Ms. Sony
We have so many exciting things happening in the 4th quarter including the Art Show on May 2, 2017. This is our chance to show case all of the artistic talent of the students through their work they have completed this year. Each student will have at least one piece of artwork that he/she has chosen to be in the art show. They will also have a portfolio that will be available to take home that night of their remaining artwork from the year.
During the 4th quarter, third grade is completing their 3-D African Masks and working on their Self Portraits. Fourth grade students are currently completing their 1-Point Perspective Drawing and will be doing Self Portraits. We are trying to sneak in time to do a Still Life project as well. Weather permitting; we will go outside to do some outdoor drawing in May!
Thanks for all of your support for the art program and do not forget to check out the student artwork on our school page at www.artsonia.com.
Music - Mrs. Ziegler
3rd Grade and 4rth Grade:
Third and fourth grade students enjoyed a wonderful Opera Columbus performance of Billy Goats Gruff on March 9. Forty of our students were able to be on stage and a part of the cast. It was an enjoyable morning for the entire school.
Our third grade students have just completed testing over the instruments of the orchestra, rhythm, meter, & the history of The Star Spangled Banner. They have really improved since the beginning of the year!
We will work on reading and writing notes from whole to sixteenth, including quarter, half and whole rests, learn common terms and signs for dynamics, and learn about form in music during the remainder of the year. We are also looking forward to singing some fun songs that will be video recorded and played during the Art Show in May. Hope you will be able to come and enjoy some great art and fine music.
Our fourth grade students are working hard to get ready for their May performance with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. Students are working to play In the Field Stood a Birch Tree, The Anvil Chorus, and Come to Play on their recorders. Please encourage them to practice on these Link Up pieces. We want to do a great job when we play at the Ohio Theater!
We have also been working very hard to learn the nine required pieces for Recorder Karate 1. Almost everyone has earned the first two belts and many have earned more. We currently have eight black belt students in Recorder Karate 1 and several students who are working to complete Recorder Karate 2. Five students can play and have memorized Take Me Out to the Ballgame. I am very pleased with their hard work. I am hearing the students play pieces for their recorder belts on Mondays & Wednesdays during their recess.
