Dear 1st Graders,
I hope you and your family are well. I thought we would start this week with a fun book. Do you like "Pete the Cat" books? Did you know that the author is a former music teacher? That why there is always some music in his books. So go ahead and sing with the video below.

Print out the duck and bird pages, fill in the words and color. Then in the comment section below, tell me what instruments represented what animals in the story.

Locomotor is when you move through the space and nonlocomotor is when you move in your own space. In this video you'll get to explore the Star Wars galaxy while moving, stretching, and posing in nonlocomotor ways.
