Animated Learning with Coconuts

Animated Learning

Volunteers Jeramiah Bowman and Cory Bernaert read “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” to the children and their families. Jeramiah and Cory introduced families to patterned text which occurs in songs and chants.  Cory explored the science of coconuts through the use of texture words and Jeramiah, the Director of the Marching Band of Pirates at Braden River High School (MBOP) and the 2017 Florida Marching Band State Champions, introduced rhythms including quarter notes, eighth notes, half notes and rest.  Families clapped the rhythms and then transferred to instruments.
