Spring 2020 Online Lesson Plans:

Posted:  4-27-2020  
This week let's remember WHO we are and WHAT we believe in!!!!  You will find below links/recordings of two of our very important songs.  Sing the songs sometime this week and tell someone what each song represents and why it is important! :-)  I miss you bunches!  Anytime, shoot me an e-mail and tell me how you're doing!  Send me a video of you singing one of your songs.  I would love to hear how things are going for you!   <3, Mrs. Knight
 
(School Song and Fight Song are coming next!)
 
Oh, say, can you see? By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave?
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Abernathy School Song  -- Music coming soon...

Old AHS to you we'll be true
May our loyalty win a victory!
Through all the years,
With our smiles and cheers,
There are memories. We will cherish these.
To you we sing! Let our praises ring!
May each noble thought Be a service wrought
So here's to you and our colors too,
And we'll always be fighting for you!

 

 

Abernathy Fight Song https://2.files.edl.io/BZ0WPn4bDlUz435Z5uTz3wz5crykxFr6s6ozNQ4beupfGjCg.m4a

Hail to the Antelopes
Cheer them along the way
Onward to victory
As we win again today
We'll give a cheer to the Antelopes
Long may they reign supreme
Fight til the echoes ring
For the glory of our team.

Everyone has the same lesson this week!  No Quaver this time.
 
We are going to write a rap or a song!!!
 

To Write a rap or a song:

 

1.  Pick a Theme.

2.  Determine how long…how many measures (in groups of 4)…rec. 12-24 measures

3.  Rhyming Words: Dog

  • Dog/log/along
  • Bone/cone
  • Collar/dollar
  • Fur/sir
  • Bark/dark
  • Paw/saw
  • Tail/nail
 
 
Write the lyrics:

I have a dog,

But we don’t get along.

He likes to chew a bone,

When it looks like a cone.

When he wears his collar,

People throw him a dollar.

He has soft fur,

And likes to be called sir.

When he wags his tail,

It gets stuck on his nail.

              

Pat your legs as you say the rap to make sure it flows well.  Don’t be afraid to edit!  This will be a work in progress.

 

 

 

OPTIONS TO TURN IT IN:

  1. Send Mrs. Knight a written copy of your rap/song—just the lyrics. Each phrase should be on one line (just like the example above). E-mail to Mrs. Knight at aknight@abernathyisd.com
  2. Video a performance of your rap/song. Send me the video! 

 

Have fun with this assignment.  Get your family involved!  Maybe someone can accompany the beat with a drum (pot and spoon).  What about backup singers?  How about your dog being your dance partner!!!  Take it outside and use found sounds in your performance.  If you have more than one child in your family, all of you do it together and turn it is as a group project.  I would like to make a folder and drop them all in there so you can see each other’s performances! Have fun!!!

Kinder--Quaver lesson on Beat vs. No Beat
1st - 5th--Quaver review on Steady Beat
 
All--log into Quaver (firstlast-aes   you have to add the dash!!!); click on the "Assignment" circle.
 
After you sign in, if you scroll to the very bottom it will give you the option to run with "Flash."  If you select this, it will take you to Quaver Street.  You can click and change your Avatar, explore the different places on Quaver Street, go to the subway and hear different music styles...   It is really neat!!!!
 
Shoot me a little video and email it to me at aknight@abernathyisd.com .  I miss seeing your faces!!!!!
I am working on trying to perhaps set up a Zoom meeting with each grade level just so we can check in and see each other just to chat about life at home!  Maybe I could let Dottie, Samson and Badger say hello!!!  Stay tuned for information on that. Check back every so often!
 
Love you, my little chickens!!!!!
