It’s UPSIDE DOWN WEEK and all of my students are having fun tackling their assignment completely upside down!
When my students come in for their lesson the first thing notice is Pandora playing CHRISTMAS MUSIC….
Once they sit down, they write the following musical symbols upside down:
- Repeat Sing
- Flat Sign
- Treble Clef
- Quarter Rest (not so easy….)
Then they complete a note-reading worksheet where they not only write their name on it upside down, but they turn the whole page upside down, turn the bass clef into the treble clef and the other way around. Then they write the correct letter…upside down, of course.
Flashcards come next- they are presented upside down but the student plays the actual note on the piano.
Lesson assignment pieces are played upside down for an upside down sticker.
Our theme song this week is the “Upside Down” Song.
If buttercups buzz’d after the bee,
If boats were on land, churches on sea,
If ponies rode men and if grass ate the cows,
and cats should be chased into holes by the mouse;
If the mammas sold their babies to others for half a crown,
If summer were spring and the other way around,
Then all the world would be upside down.
Olivia decided the best way to read the sign was upside down!
Cole is doing his flashcards upside down.
April plays her lesson book assignment upside down!
Lesson book cost $8.95. Look on Zoey’s face when I let her know she’s playing this song upside down…..priceless.
Josie breezed through her upside down flashcards–Great Job!!
Quintin sight-read the “upside Down Song”.
