In appreciation of Black History month, kindergarten is learning about famous jazz musicians! We learned about Charlie Parker by reading the book “Charlie Parker Played Be Bop” and charting onomatopoeia words. After, we listened to a sample of his music and students drew a picture of how it made them feel and what type of weather they envisioned when listening! They gave responses like “shocked because he is so talented” “it made me feel like dancing” “I pictured lots of sunshine!”
4th grade has web researching different African American athletes and creating a writing project around the information!
