DANCE LESSONS!

 

What is happening in the dance room this week?

 

All students will be exploring isolations with dance content.  Isolation is defined as moving one body part at one time.  Each grade level will have different activities to explore isolations based on level appropriateness.   Each grade level will connect isolations with ELA, Math, Science or Social Studies in the following ways:

Kindergarten – We will read the book, Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney.  We will discuss parts of a book; specifically spine.  We will make connections with the spine of our own bodies and the spine of a book.  We will create movement based on isolating our own spine and mimicking movement of a book and the function of the book spine. 

First Grade – Students will create a dance based on isolations and push and pull concepts dealing with forces of an object with Science. 

Second Grade – Students will create dance phrases connecting isolations to different social situations. 

Third Grade – Students will represent isolations and fractions using choreographic principles.

Fourth Grade - Students will create a danced based on isolations and push and pull concepts dealing with forces of an object with Science. 

Fifth Grade – Students will learn a Native American dance and then use collaborative skills to improvise and create a dance of their own.
