Nutty for The Nutcracker!

'Tis the season for "The Nutcracker!" Normally, I do this with all grades, K-5 during the last few weeks of December.

Viennese Musical Clock movement to Rondo Form

Got this lesson from the amazing teacher I student taught with. This video is too cute not to share! Students created all the movements in the video except the clock movement for the A section.

Learned the term rondo form by making different forms out of the songs/chants "Hop Old Squirrel," "Whisky Frisky…
