MEET A COMPOSER MONDAY
Antonio Lucio Vivaldi was an Italian Baroque musical composer, virtuoso violinist, teacher, and Roman Catholic priest. Born in Venice on March 4, 1678 and July 28, 1741. He is regarded as one of the greatest Baroque composers, and his influence during his lifetime was widespread across Europe.
With a little chill in the air... let's listen to one of his famous pieces called The Four Seasons (Winter).
TERRIFIC MOVEMENT TUESDAY
Review the composer you learned about yesterday, Vivaldi! Let's get moving! Find a scarf, pillowcase or ribbon (anything you can move loosely in the air). Move it all around in the air to the music. Try moving it high in the air when you hear high notes and low to the ground when you hear low notes. The sky is the limit.. have fun!
WORK IT OUT WEDNESDAY
We love to move in music! Here's some fun music you can move to at home!
As of right now, our 2nd grade program, Goin' Buggy, is canceled.
