Please read about Carnival Of the Animals and complete the activities in the packet. Below is a video of music of Carnival Of The Animals with some funny Daffy and Bugs Bunny commentary. Please watch both videos so you can hear the music and hopefully laugh too! (One of you can airplay it for the class or you can all grab headphones and watch it individually!)
Grade 6 and 7 watch this. Then do retelling the story activity and Composer research activity.
Grade 8- Watch this video stop at 7:10. Then do practice sheets.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO NEED TO FINISH YOUR CONCERT REVIEWS, HERE IS THE LINK TO THE VIDEOS!
Tuesday, Jan 8, 9:00am-11:00am: Concert rehearsal at SPHS
Student will be called to the office at 8:45am to load busses and head to SPHS. Memorial and Mahoney rehearse from 9:00am-10:00am and then we rehearse with the HS students from 10:00-10:40 and be back to school by 11:00am. Student will be missing a bit of class time for this rehearsal. Teachers have been notified!
I highly suggest students dress in layers. Wearing a t-shirt is HIGHLY recommend. Students often overheat at rehearsal if wearing hoodies/sweaters!
