In the music classroom at Monte Vista Elementary, we think the Hokey Pokey REALLY IS what it is all about! When students enter the music classroom, they learn about a variety of cultures, build imagination and intellectual interest, learn teamwork, conquer their fears, aide their language development, practice hard work and persistence, gain self confidence, and improve their academics. This is accomplished by singing, playing Orff instruments, and movement. During class, core subjects of reading, math, science and social studies are all reinforced. Overall, it is our goal to instill a lifelong love for the art of music. Thank you to the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts learning program for funding the music program and making it available to all students at Monte Vista Elementary!
