I love the music from The Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky. Grade 2 did an excellent job learning a movement sequence to ‘Trepak’ today and listening out for the different sections (AABA + coda). They were proud of themselves too and really wanted to record it so their parents can watch it at home.
We also did the same activity in 1P using movement scarves first as a whole class before creating their own AABA movement sequences in small groups.
