Students in Mrs. Pfeil’s and Mrs. Andreoni’s classes at Wileman Elementary were “all ears” recently as they listened to a local eighth-grader, Madelyn Andreoni, play the violin.
The story in the reading series for this week focuses on music as the topic.
Students will be introduced to different types of instruments. In an effort to build background knowledge the teachers felt it was important for students to listen to a musical instrument and be able to ask some of the questions they might have.
When they read the story in lessons this week they will be able to draw on the information they gained from this performance.
Afterward there were many comments about students wishing to play an instrument in the band or orchestra. All in all the students were “tuned in” and ready to learn!
