We will have an exciting year, traveling on a musical journey through festivals and celebrations around the world. Teacher created booklets will accompany each country and festival and contain songs, games, rhythmic practice, theory worksheets and factual information about each country and their traditions. Time and school demands, will determine how many countries we will explore, so check with your child about the current curriculum.
Our adventure will begin right here at home as we learn the patriotic songs and facts about great composers of the USA.
Our next unit will end with the feast of Thanksgiving.
Some other stops along the way may be:
* Chinese New Year
* Mardi Gras
* African Harvest Festivals
* Cinco de Mayo
