This year, in all three of my schools, (RES, UID, and Smilie) we are beginning the year with songs from around the world sung in several different languages, focusing especially on Spanish songs. I will be posting the lyrics to many of these songs here on my blog, so please keep checking in! We will also incorporate World music into instrumental play and dance.
The composers we will specifically learn about this year are Beethoven, Saint-Seans (Carnival of the Animals) and the Beatles. Yes, the Beatles! But we will start with Beethoven, so please ask your child what they have learned about this great composer.
