OJCS Storytime – What is An Orchestra?

Let’s start our storytime by watching this great video.  It will serve as an introduction to our topic.

Now on to the books!  Today we read:

Because by Mo Willems and Amber Ren

Meet the Orchestra by Ann Hayes, illustrated by Karmen Thompson

If you have extra time and want the full orchestra experience, you can watch and listen to the classic Peter and The Wolf!  The music was composed by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936.

NOTE TO TEACHERS: Preview the video first to decide if it is appropriate for your class.  This is an old cartoon and there are a few elements that may frighten very young children.
