Last night we had the first ever Grant Road Carnival! It was a wonderful evening filled with hot chocolate, crafts, dancing and music. In the gym, we put on a mini-concert with Kindergarten to Grade 2 students and then another mini-band concert featuring Grades 6-8 students.
Here are some student reflections from the concert:
Best wishes for a restful break and a happy and healthy new year!
This month all classes are preparing for a performance at the Grant Road Winter Carnival. I can't wait to post some videos after our performance on December 20th! We have been talking a lot about "nice" singing voices - when to be LOUD and when to be SOFT. This leads us into our study of dynamics in music - the volume of music! In Ms. Selimos' class, we listened to two different pieces of music - one was FORTE (loud) and the other was PIANO (soft). The students listened to the music and responded through drawing. Here are some examples of their work:
