February - Game Month

Surely “Spring is right around the corner”! Our students  passed the time during February’s frigid weather by declaring February “Game Month”- each week, at the beginning of class, they’d spend a few minutes  playing   board games created by master teachers throughout the US and Canada. We developed our skills in key recognition, note reading, intervals and rhythm, while building snowmen, chasing snow flakes, playing hearts and clubs, and racing around a race track counting rhythms. We do play games on the studio computer and iPad, but sometimes, playing an old-fashioned board game (and eating your life saver game piece!) is even more fun!
