• This week is Free Choice Music Week! There are tons of choices for what to do, so please look at this document and pick whatever sounds most fun to you!


    You may tell me about what you did by filling out this exit ticket,

    or you can talk to me about it in a flipgrid video


    Flipgrid will now give you a notification that your video has been submitted successfully, so if that was something that was frustrating about using that program, feel free to give it another try! I think it can sometimes be easier for students just to tell me about what they have been doing instead of typing it up, and I also miss everyone and love to see how they are doing! :)

  • Hello! Please see the list below for what students should work on when they would normally have music class. Students in Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade should use the Music Listening Worksheets, while students in 3rd-5th grade should use the Music Listening Journal.

    Students should complete two journal entries per missed music class. The songs do not need to go in order of the choices listed! 

    If the student does not have a printed copy/can't print at home, please have them email me their responses at mpalladino@hamilton.k12.nj.us. All paper journals must be returned to me at their first music class once school is back in person. Thank you and stay safe!
