I checked this book out of the library and I am going to pick and choose different sections of the book to learn about. This book covers a lot of information, composers, different musical eras, and instruments of the orchestra. We are going to concentrate on musical instruments of the orchestra.
Some of Gracie's schoolwork over the next week is going to include learning her "color" words. We started by making a colorful ice cream cone. Everyday, as she learns a new color word, she will add a scoop to the cone. Soon Grace will have a tall ice-cream cone labeled with all of her new words. I will keep this visual display up so that it will serve as a reminder of her words as she comes to them in her reading.
You may also be interested in the great resources that I found to help Grace with her words. DLTK Color Buddies has many worksheets and activities that I am just printing out which I find very helpful to re-enforce her learning. Some of the activies are geared more toward preschoolers learning their colors, but I just tweak them a little and they are perfect for Grace.
