Music to Share with your 3rd Grader

Third grade classes have been learning about the most common instruments of the orchestra and what families they belong to:

  • Strings

  • Woodwinds

  • Brass

  • Percussion

  • Keyboards

There are some GREAT games for reviewing instruments on the website. I recommend you take time to share some of these activities with your student at home. (You can email me to get the User Name and Password at

  • Instruments of the Orchestra

  • What Instrument Do You Hear?

  • Instrument Bingo

Additionally, here is a fun version of Knick Knack Paddy Whack that demonstrates instruments in a fun, jazzy version to watch on YouTube. I love this publisher, Barefoot Books, and they have free videos of most of their musical books. Good stuff!
