What A Wonderful World

One of my favorite units of study with the 1st grade is our unit on jazz music. We talk about the instruments in each of the jazz ensemble families and discuss jazz legend Louis Armstrong. The students recreate art work to his famous recording of the song, “What A Wonderful World.”

Asian Music

The 1st graders just finished a unit on Asian music, during which we discovered that most Asian music deals with nature. After reading the children’s book, The Umbrella, we created a rain storm using our own body percussion. I encourage you to close your eyes and relax as you watch this video.
