Lesson #1: The Sound of Music
Lesson #2: Newsies
Of course I suggest watching both of the musicals this month.
Not only will it make our live lessons more meaningful, but it will also give your children a huge insight into the events of the world at the time of each musical.
This is a great month to incorporate music and history!
Amazon Prime, YouTube, Disney+ - are just a few suggestions for streaming platforms.
There are four books in particular that are wonderful read alouds this month:
- The Story of the Trapp Family Singers
- V is for von Trapp
- Riding the Rails to Home: A Newsie Rides the Orphan Train
- The Journal of Finn Reardon
