we had some interesting "new" words to add to our vocabulary. The kids did a super job learning them all and we'll be reinforcing them over the last 2 classes.
In addition, we started a bit of a study of Mozart's, "The Magic Flute. This past class, we introduced the opera by reading this version of the story behind the opera.The pictures in this book are so colorful and vivid. With a bit of expressive reading, it completely captured the kids' attention. They LOVED it! We also made pan flutes out of straws and learned a bit about how the flute works. A very fun class.
I have lots more fun stuff planned for next week's class, so stayed tuned for some more ideas and pictures!
