  • MIOSM Presentation

    Posted by JODIE MCALLISTER on 3/17/2021

    March is music in our schools month, and Goose Bay Elementary is no exception! Early this month I asked our kiddos what music means to them. Each child created their own sentence and artwork about what music does, is and makes them become. I compiled all the responses and turned it into a presentation. As part of the experience I've included audio clips of our Kindergarten, First and Second Grade Music Classes. You can watch it here.

  • February Music Fun Board!

    Posted by JODIE MCALLISTER on 2/4/2021

    And here is the Music fun Board for February!


    The main themes are love, kindness and learning to read notes on the staff for Superbowl. So far the Cupid on the Run is a hit! With the cold temperatures this week, I included it in my lessons to counteract indoor recess and to give the kids another opportunity to move! Although designed for PE, musicians can benefit as the game helps build student focus, attention, and response to visual and aural cues. Plus it helps them get their sillies out! The rest of the board includes stories, rhythm playalongs, and features some of my favorite African American performers just in time for Black history month. Ella Fitzgerald's Tisket Tasket, the Harlem Globe Trotters' rhythm basketball moves, Nat King Cole's L-O-V-E, and Mary Mary's cover of "Put a little love in your heart." We also play homage to the Beatles with a children's world music cover of "All you need is love." Kiddos from  Asia and Africa collaborated together to show us what is most important- Love and Kindness. :) Enjoy!

  • Note Name Memory Game!

    Posted by JODIE MCALLISTER on 1/26/2021 12:00:00 PM


    This week our kiddos began to learn about the Treble Staff! This is a device musicians use to read music. We also played a fun note name memory game together in class. If you'd like to play it at home, please visit musicplayonline.com . Once you're there click on the label on the right side of the page. The site doesn't allow me to directly link the game to my blog. But you should still be able to get there. Enjoy!

  • Virtual Winter Concert

    Posted by JODIE MCALLISTER on 12/18/2020

    Announcing our first ever Virtual Winter Concert here at Goose Bay Elementary School! I am excited to share our student efforts with our family, friends and Goose Bay Community. 


    Goose Bay Elementary School Virtual Winter Concert 2020-2021


    All GBE students perform in a socially distanced atmosphere, and the music room and all materials are disinfected after each use. In addition, students are required to sanitize before and after the use of all materials to keep everyone safe. In these unprecedented times, it is important to look at what is important, and focus on the good. This is where we find our resilience and strength. Here's to a happy, healthy Holiday Season into 2021. We are Goose Bay Strong!
