Our first Side X Side unit began this January. Author, poet, illustrator, and musician Stephen Constanza joined us for our project kick off and shortly thereafter we had our first session. During this unit students will be listening to music, specifically Vivaldi's concerto, the Four Seasons, and creating their own poetry and illustration based on the music. In the first session students began to listen to the concerto and discussed how the music made them feel, while relating it to a poem. Students acted out the poem, to the music, playing various instruments including violin and cello.
Students can't wait for our next session where we will begin painting to music!
