Happy Friday! Today we met our classical music specialist Isabelle! We listened to Rossini’s William Tell Overture as we stomped around like elephants and tiptoed around the room like mice. It was a wonderful learningl opportunity for the children to kinetically explore music and to begin understanding theoretical concepts such as forte (loud) and piano (quiet). We are so excited about our music classes with Isabelle, and cannot wait until next week!

 

Also, just a friendly reminder that Buckle My Shoe will be closed on Monday October 10thfor Columbus Day, and Wednesday October 12th for Yom Kippur.
