Spring 2020 Online Lesson Plans:
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!

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!

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.
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
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:
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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!!!
