Concordia's Elementary Music Program

If you’ve heard one of Concordia’s elementary school concerts, you’ll know Music Teacher Ms. Martha Seibel has our students performing at a very high level, learning and having fun in the process.

“I like learning songs to perform because Ms. Seibel gives us a song and we practice it together over and over, and we get better at music,” said Linh (G1), adding, “Our class has some instruments and we pass them around - my favorite was a glockenspiel.”

“I want kids to have fun and work together, to “see” music, interact and create,” said Ms. Seibel. “Some parts in the day we are individually focused. Music class can be different because we do something together and fun, which can be a great thing for kids in the middle of the day.”

“We break things down into steps, starting with the most basic thing, and then add something new and change it slightly. It starts very simple but when you add it becomes very complex.

“Now the kids are getting ready for concerts, taking the musical information they’ve been gathering all year and making choices about what instrument they’ll play, what rhythm, being independent about what they’ll do.”

Grade 2 Writing Celebration- Graphic Novels

Grade 2 students in Ms. Shih’s class wrote graphic novels, and presented their work to both schoolmates and parents.

“I love Ms. Lubaton and I love tigers, so I wrote about Ms. Lubaton going to the zoo,” said Kinsley. “I liked using the words ‘brave’ and ‘helpful’, so people understand the story.”

“I wrote about my friend Ye Eun making friends with a small pencil, because we use pencils to write stories,” said Youie, adding, “I liked drawing Ye Eun smiling.”

Students were asked to draw graphic novels using facial expressions and dialogue to develop their characters, create problems and show how they were solved, and give their stories a happy ending.

After School Activities (ASAs)

Concordia supports a dynamic after school program as a service to our community so that children have an opportunity to participate in enrichment programs not readily available in English in Hanoi. After School Activities (ASAs) provide opportunities for students in grades 1-5 that are meant to extend their learning and experiences, helping to teach the whole child. We desire to support children in the areas of sports, creative play, drama/performing arts, fine arts, cultural exploration, science and engineering, mathematics, literacy, life skills, and environment and nature education. Our program offers four six-week sessions on both Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school year.

Grade 4 Energy Study

Grade 4 is studying energy, starting with electricity.  Students gathered different components and were tasked with combining them into circuits, starting with a simple circuit that powered a single light bulb.  This progressed to engineering a parallel circuit that ran two items - like a motor AND a light bulb where the power could be switched between the two.
