Seventh Grade - We are starting our Jingle Unit! Monday, we discussed jingles in music. Tuesday, every student has to pick a product and write a 15-30 second jingle. They could choose an existing song or pick their own tune for their jingle. Any student who did not complete their jingle in class must complete it for homework. Wednesday, Students will be performing their jingle for the class. Thursday and Friday - We will choose our favorite jingle and create our own commercial for viewing as a class.

All 7th Grade students had to hand in a song title and artist of their choice for a later listening activity.
