First Grade Week 6 -- Piano & using music to illustrate stories

This week is a special auditorium session first graders learned about how a piano works.  Among other piano facts they learned that a piano is an idiophone and therefore has more in common with cymbals or a xylophone that a guitar.

The second half of the class was spent exploring the ability of music to make mental pictures and dramatize stories.  Could there be a first grade performance down the road related to this knowledge.  Stayed tuned!

Homework -- complete piano worksheet.
