Hello First Grade! We are several weeks into our latest PYP unit which is titled, "Listening with Our Ears and Our Bodies." This unit is designed to help the children feel prepared for the up coming field trip. Some of our activities include learning about orchestral instruments, being able to recognize the different timbres, and enjoying the story Peter and the Wolf.
In addition to these activities, we will continue to spend time practicing reading and writing music, doing dances such as Kolo from Yugoslavia and learning about this months composer, Clara Schumann. I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by and how much fun I am having with these kids. Have a great weekend!
