5th Grade Right to Read Video "I'm Gonna Read (500 Books)"

The 5th grade music classes learned a lot about producing a music video and had a good time as well with our parody of  I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by the The Proclaimers.  Each pod has a goal of reading 500 books this week, inspired by the Indy 500.  Our Right to Read theme, Rev up For Reading, has an emphasis on auto racing.  We are playing this video over our short circuit TV each morning this week.

Miss Knoth's 1st Grade:" Trepak"

The 1st grade classes show the beat and form (AABAcoda) of Tchaikovsky's Trepak (Russian Dance) from Nutcracker.  Watch how the jumps occur on the accents.  This activity comes from Parachutes and Ribbons and Scarves, Oh My by Artie Almeida.
