JAPAN - Kit in Our Studio Library
 ___1. Activity during your study of Twinkle A: You are studying piano lessons based upon the Suzuki method of teaching.  Who is Suzuki?  Do research about him and create a lap book based upon your research.  Include information about where he was born - Nagoya, Japan.  Be able to find it on the globe during your next piano lesson.

___2. Activity during your study of Twinkle B:  You are also listening to a CD with pieces from your Suzuki book performed by Dr. Haruko Kataoka.  Dr. Kataoka was chosen by Dr. Suzuki to apply his violin teaching method to piano, and was considered one of the World's leading authorities on the Suzuki Piano School.  Please include information about her in your lapbooks.

___3. Activity during your study of Twinkle C:  Do the Activity Kit in our studio library about Japan. (Photo above right)  You may also include interesting information that you have learned from the kit in your lapbook!

Here are a few examples of Suzuki lapbooks created by my students.  They also had the joy of attending a Japan Fest in Atlanta, GA.  Photos located here.  We will be doing more of this on our upcoming adventures!
