In a comfortable position, quietly listen to The Finale by Camille Saint-Saëns once. Does it remind you of any other song you have heard this year? Listen to the first 30 seconds of the Introduction and notice the similarities.
Listen to the poem. List the sets of rhyming words that you hear.
Play the piece again while your child colors the half sheet with the music notes. They may draw any animal in the blank space or draw how the song makes them feel.
We will be collecting this half sheet on Friday at materials pick-up and adding it to your child’s other Composer Study drawings.

Listen along as Mrs. Resendez reads to us from The Adventures of Winnie-The-Pooh, Chapter 9: In Which Piglet is Entirely Surrounded by Water.
You can listen to part of this reading in the afternoon and finish it this evening!
Watch this animation of the Finale of Carnival of the Animals as a treat at the end of your school day:
As always, reading with your child in the evenings is a great way to grow their mental word bank and fluency, and they may want to show their Math Card Deck to a parent or sibling after dinner!

See you tomorrow for School Day #93.
