Just a few more pictures about what we've done this week. Tuesday was Wild West Day so we celebrated western style. Here's a quick look at some of the activities we did throughout the day.
that gold, I had them build measures that we clapped together. Then they got the opportunity to try to stump me by building a group of measures they thought would be really complicated for me to clap! They really had a good time with this entire activity! Who knew a pile of painted stones could be so much fun?!
With the help of my amazing husband, we also put together a really cool, western obstacle course. After given them a term name or definition, each camper had to navigate the course to grab the correct term and then navigate back through the course to hand the term to me.
I think crawling through the tire was the favorite spot!
Our American composer for the day was Aaron Copland. We listened to his life story and then listened to "Rodeo" while watching an actual rodeo on YouTube.
Of course, we also listened to some folk songs and then learned to play the spoons and the washboard while listening to "Oh Susanna". They did extremely well at this and really kept a nice steady beat! They surprised even me!
Overall, another fun day at the Notable Music Studio! Tomorrow we head to Hawaii and all that water...
