The Nutcracker

I have a feeling that many of you are using the Holiday Season to talk about The Nutcracker. I came across the blog below that has some great activities and lessons for sharing The Nutcracker with your students. If you don’t do this, I suggest that you try to incorporate it into your December curriculum. It’s an easy way to introduce classical music to the students and it’s relevent to what they are hearing on television, movies, and in stores. I know the students get excited when they can make “real life” connections to the classics.


Do you have a special way that you like to introduce the dances to your students?

  1. For our holiday show this year, the chorus is marching to their riser spot using “The March” from The Nutcracker Suite. It’s a musical and ‘easy’ way for the students to focus and be ready for the concert to begin.
