In Second Grade, we've used Music Edventures in the Classroom with sturdy songs, dance, and "Scotland's Burning". After a hand drawn map of Ireland and Scotland, the second time I brought a visitor from Northern Ireland Mr. Pauraig Seosamh Mhuire Ui Dhubhshlain.
Pauraig played his fiddle in Mrs. Davis's class at Liggett Elementary and Ms. Vallens, the Principal also participated. He played The Christmas Eve Reel from Pint of Irish.org. They began to understand another kind of listening, another kind of measurement, a new understanding of the Earth and all while learning a new song form and renewing what they had done before.
