Another day in the life of the bumblebees! We continued our exploration of Rimsky Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumble Bee” today with different orchestrations and instrumentations. Additionally, we introduced them to different classical pieces today. A few highlights that the children enjoyed were Bach’s “Air” and “Fur Elise” by Beethoven. We also had a few of the big kids visit us from the four’s classroom. It was so much fun to watch them interact with the 1A class!
