Ms. Cordero
This information was taken directly from the LMU family of schools newsletter.  Congratulations to Lauryn, Heather, Brandon and Nicholas for having their Haiku poems chosen for the concert.

Tania Fleischer, a professor of music at LMU, and Mike Willis, a School of Education graduate student, taught haiku lessons to four seventh and eighth grade classes at St. Anastasia, Visitation and St. Jerome schools last fall. An exciting collaboration between education graduate students and music faculty created a lesson that mixed rich content knowledge with cutting edge pedagogical techniques. Students created and performed this Japanese style of poetry while learning its background, history and structure.

Students were invited to submit their poems for an upcoming performance – 32 students (out of 400 entrants) were selected to present their poems during the Concerts of Music for Children at LMU. Students will recite their poems accompanied by Baroque-era music from LMU’s music students.

Please join us at Murphy Recital Hall on Sunday, Jan. 22 for two performances (1 p.m. and 3 p.m.) for the concert, which is free and open to the community with reservations required. Please call 310.568.6141 for reservations.

Here are the instructions for printing out these sheets. 1)Use this online die .  Go online and enter the number 7 in the first box, 1 in the second box, and 1 in the third box.  2)Roll the dice and that is the number of the page you should print of the Bingo Card document.  3)Do NOT print the whole document.  You will end up printing 7 bingo pages (14 cards).  You will waste ink.  You should only print one out of the seven pages (based on your roll), and your page will have two bingo cards on it.
