Welcome back after our Easter break! It is hard to believe there are only two months left in the school year. From now until May long weekend, we will be studying different instruments of the orchestra and the classic orchestral piece, "Peter and the Wolf".
During our first few classes, we sorted instruments into different families: Strings, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion. We are lucky to have an online subscription to "BrainPop Jr." at Grant Road School. There are lots of fun videos and activities to teach students about a variety of topics. We used the website to play instrument sorting games and learn more about the instruments of the orchestra.
This week students will also learn about the different musical themes for each character in Peter and the Wolf!
