Due to Santa Cecilia, the patron saint of music,
we will continue doing activities at our school.
On Friday November 11th, we spoke to all students (Elementary students in the music room and the little ones in preschool in their classes) about Don Antonio Belmonte Diaz, who will come on Monday to show us his work. We saw a presentation where we learned a little about his life and were shown many photos of the craftsman with all the instruments he has made so far.
We have a lot of questions to ask him when he comes!
Later in Arts Education and Music class, students in grades 5 and 6 were able to build their own musical instruments, with custard and yogurt containers, rolls of paper, wool, soda can tabs, tetra bricks and rice we brought home.
The results were: maracas, rain sticks, Chinese drums, timbales and others that we invented and which sounded really funny.
After the great work accomplished, we got to play games in English about musical instruments: matching games, dominoes, Parcheesi and puzzles.
We had a great time!
