Students played a modified version of “Musical Chairs” this week while listening to different classical songs. They had to move to the rhythm and compare/contrast the sounds. Students listened to: “Peter’s Theme” from Peter and The Wolf, Brahms “Lullaby,” Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain,” and Aaron Copland’s “Hoe-Down.”

As there will only be one day of Spanish classes the week of Thanksgiving, the following post will include that day with plans for this week.
Pre-Kindergarten through Second Grade: We will learn Thanksgiving-related vocabulary this week, as these classes won’t have Spanish the week of Thanksgiving.
Third and Fourth Grade: We will be working the next two weeks on learning the words to Spanish Silent Night – “Noche de Paz” – for our Christmas program coming up next month.
Fifth Grade: We are going to spend the next few classes practicing our reading skills in Spanish, as well as answering comprehension questions about what we read.
Sixth Grade: We are finishing up Unit 2 this week, and have a test scheduled for November 24.
