Ms. Kostenbauer’s Office Hours

Monday through Thursday, 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM


 

Here are a list of videos and web pages to explore.  Check back as I will try to add some new ones. 

I have divided them into three groups: older students, younger students and all students.  I will send out hard copy assignments (scavenger hunts, worksheets, etc.) on Wednesdays as a guideline during the week your child is scheduled for music, but if you want to explore these and send me your findings at any time.  It can be a video/picture of what you are doing, a written description of what you learned, etc. and I can use that in my grading and contact time as well.  Many of these are short (ten minutes or less). 

If you happen to find another video or site that you like a lot that is not on my list, please share it with me—I would love to learn what you find.
