Beverly Vista Blog

Dear Parents,

Welcome to your Beverly Vista School Weekly Report Blog!

Here you will learn about all that we have covered with your wonderful children during the week.  This blog is updated weekly.  Please check periodically for the updates.

 September 12, 2018 - Kindergarten -- We had a wonderful first day of keyboarding class! Everyone got acquainted with all of their new materials: their pianos, song books, and headphones! We handed out the mini keyboards to everyone, and learned where the 8 essential notes are from middle c to the next octave up. Everyone put stickers on these notes to identify them. After learning these notes, everyone was introduced to their first song, Ode to Joy! We will be working on this song in the next class, so students are encouraged to practice it as much as they would like.

Everyone put stickers on these notes to identify them. After learning these notes, everyone practiced the first song, Ode to Joy, for the remainder of class. Next week, we will go over Ode to Joy and possibly take a look at the next song after that, Mary Had a Little Lamb.

We are looking forward to next week!

Please remind your children to take good care of their equipment as it is sensitive.

Please keep in mind that since this is a group class, and every student learns at the pace of the group, it is expected that some children may be faster than others in learning.  In this group class we all work as a team, so the faster students get to help their study partners.

Thank you very much.
