The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is a beautiful fairy tale about a young girl, Clara, and a very unusual Christmas. With the help of the family friend, Herr Drosselmeyer, who brings Clara a beautiful Nutcracker doll, she travels through the enchanted land of her fascinating dreams.
The story itself was an insipration for the teachers to share it this winter with the children and decorate the entrance to the school. Girls made ballerinas with the help of their teachers. We listened to the music pieces from the famous work by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky during our Art and Music classes and watched some of the extracts from the famous ballet. We also played the Nutcracker Music Game and learned about the story and musical instruments in innovative ways.
