The fifth-grade classes enjoyed doing reader's theatre about the Revolutionary War.  They performed "Tea Overboard" about the  Boston Tea Party, "The British are Coming!" about Paul Revere's Ride and "Molly Pitcher" which was about the Battle at Valley Forge.  The final theatre was from King George's point of view.  It was a fun and educational experience!

Fourth-Grade's Trip to the Symphony

Submitted by corallee.findlay on Fri, 01/18/2013 - 08:28

What colors do you see when you listen to music? Foothill's fourth-grade had the opportunity to see the many brilliant colors created by the Utah Symphony. Conductor Valdimir Kulenovic instructed the students to envision music in terms of color. They could see relaxing blue when the Symphony performed Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake.” We were taught that music is full of imagery.
