Today we enjoyed a special up close and personal concert from one of our fabulously involved parents and family friend who happen to be incredibly talented concert musicians!! We had a counting lesson on the strings of the violin and the cello, learned musical vocabulary, and joined together in song as we were serenaded by our special guests!
The younger pod extends a huge THANK YOU to Elliston’s mommy, Joo, for arranging and providing such a once-in-a-lifetime immersive experience for the budding minds of rooms 4 and 5. Thank you!!
The children learned all about the Japanese artist Hiroshi Yoshida. He was a 20th-century Japanese painter and woodblock printmaker. We looked at his works, specifically the piece titled “Avenue of Cherry Trees”. I also shared real life photos of cherry blossom trees in the landscapes of Japan.
The Huntington Library currently has several cherry blossom trees in full bloom just out front of their Chinese garden. I encourage you to visit them and have your child smell them. This makes for a great family photo, too.
Here are a few photos of the children painting their very own tree.
