More Saint-Saens and Partner Songs

In Music, we’ve been working on “partner songs” which are two song that can be sung together at the same time. All the grade levels have learned Hey Ho Nobody Home with Ah Poor Bird and Land of the Silver Birch and Canoe Song. We have also been listening to Saint-Saens’ Danse Macabre. The Middle Kids and Older Kids read the poem, by Henri Cazalis, that was the inspiration for this piece and the Younger Kids and Preschoolers listened while doing a movement activity.
