Benton Cougar Chorus Members,

I hope you are all doing alright during this challenging and strange time.  I was very happy with the work that you were doing prior to our classes getting cancelled and our schools closing.  Don't worry - we will have concerts next year and we will still be able to make music together soon!  

I have added some fun and exciting optional learning opportunities and resources for students in the "Files and Documents" tab on the left side of the screen.  Click on the VIRTUAL LEARNING file.  You will find links to activities about Treble and Bass Clef lines and spaces, a Music Escape Room, composers, and more. 

WEEK OF 6/8Here is the optional choir activity that you can complete during the Music Virtual Schoolhouse hours on Tuesday from 10-11:30 AM, or anytime that works for you.  The activity links and descriptions have been posted in student's TEAMS accounts in Office 365.

Please complete the following 4 activities (all links provided in the student TEAMS accounts):

  1. Sing your favorite song in your room at the top of your lungs!
  2. Have fun!
  3. Enjoy your summer!


Please email Mr. Fitch- fitchrw@pwcs.edu- if you have questions accessing the Sightreading Factory activity or your child's Sightreading Factory account.


Go have some music fun!
 

Mrs. Blair
