The FDKers have been enjoying my newfound skill - uploading movies to my
computer. We have been taking short brain breaks - they love the simple
short Shake Break.
But I was surprised at the effect a movie of van Gogh
paintings backed by Mozart's music had on the students. We had just
finished using our new sound skills to spell words on our white boards. I
told the students they could take a few minutes to write or draw
whatever they wanted on the boards. I put on the van Gogh/Mozart movie.
Silence. They drew quietly, stopping frequently to watch the paintings. They are so cultured:)
