KIK ENRICHMENT SPOTLIGHT
Excerpted BandLab lesson with Mr. Martinez, Grades 5 & 6:
Below you will find brief class descriptions as well as some example links of songs created by students in the 5th & 6th Grades. The software we are using is called Bandlab and it is an online digital audio workstation.
Sample Lesson: 5/6th Grades
The music enrichment for the fifth and sixth grades will focus on three areas — listening skills, an exploration of popular music and how they are personally connected, and work in an online digital audio workstation (Bandlab). Students will learn how to form songs through the use of loops, uploaded samples as well as recording and editing original vocal tracks. Students complete three in-class projects culminating in a creation of a song based on the text of a children's book.

SPRING AUCTION WISH LIST — Can you help?
KIK is hard at work trying to secure great items for the Spring Auction. In this uncertain time, we are trying to avoid asking businesses for gift card donations.
- If you are personally willing to donate a gift card or item from our wish list, we would really appreciate it.
- While we always like to support our local businesses and restaurants, we have also included an Amazon Wish List for gift cards and other items. Thank you for your donation—the money we raise helps ALL students!
