Today in the studio, we listened to "The Four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi (inspired by a Vivaldi book that Lucy brought to school). Bruno and Cassius painted while listening to Vivaldi's "Winter". The video above shows how their paint strokes became fast when the music was fast, and slow when the music was slow.
Hadley and Prater found images of musical instruments and projected them on our glass drawing board. They then traced the images in black sharpie. First they traced the violin, then a harmonica. When our class met for second meeting, we showed the tracings. Lila said she could see the second tracing was a harmonica "because of the lines". Rose asked, "What is a harmonica?" We watched a video clip of a very catchy harmonica tune... Click here to listen.
Today we hosted Singalong in our classroom. We sang songs like Twinkle Twinkle, Puff the Magic Dragon, and Old MacDonald.
We ended the week with a dance party to "Wagon Wheel" and some outdoor play. Have a great weekend!
