This week we began exploring music and reviewing how art evokes or expresses different feelings.
Ms. Jasmine came in to share Angolan dance history. She led us through a creative movement session and taught us basic traditional dance steps.
Later in the week we listened to different genres of music and expressed the way it made us feel through movement. As a reflection we discussed how different music makes us feel what music makes us think about.
We have been working on learning rhythms and trying to play repetitive beats together.
Lastly we made shakers to support us in our music activities. The children chose one of four materials to place inside of their shakers, this week we will use them for creative movement exercises.
Please remember to return library books on Wednesdays. Last week many children were disappointed when they could not choose a new book.
