Do you know about Art's Umbrella?
They are a great organization that help bring the ARTs to kids-- and kids to the ART'S~
This is Mrs. Kreider--(Jessica's teacher) she was writing out beep-beeps for her students that were doing a GREAT job of staying sitting and being focused on the stage!
Both of the third grade classes went to see the Symphony Safari...
It was lovely to watch these kids perform, it was really cool to see how the third graders reacted-- some were fascinated, sleepy, some I think were overwhelmed with how much emotion they felt.
It was a really great program!
I got to share with quite a few of the kids, how I played violin from third grade all the way until ninth grade, I also talked about how my Dad, went to South Eugene High..(which is where the program was held)
I talked about how my Dad played bassoon, and how he was probably second chair in the state. I talked about how some conductors are really dramatic and fling sweat everywhere- :) - one of the girls was interested in all the different parts-- she couldn't seem to focus on just one thing-- I suggested that she close her eyes and listen-- she did and I think it really helped her to hear More...!
It was a great field trip and when the kids go back to the school-- they got a classroom beep-beep from the principal ... they only need to get one more and then the class earns a reward, like wearing Jammie's to school or having a tech party...
