Second graders at Runkle play instruments with singing games using the Orff approach. Students continue singing rounds and begin singing partner songs to develop vocal independence. Movement activities and rhythm reading activities are included in all lessons. In addition, we study Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev and learn about instruments of the orchestra. At the end of the year, students begin learning note names in preparation for the recorder in third grade.
