For this Arts Education installment of CHQ Watch Parties, join Deborah Sunya Moore, CHQ VP of Performing and Visual Arts and Kennedy Center workshop leader, as she leads this arts integrated lesson for children, families and teachers. Through the joy of singing a story, students in Pre-K through second grade explore relationships between reading comprehension strategies and introductory elements of music with colorful and fun picture books. The lessons are meant to be interactive for the whole family! Deborah will be on hand to answer questions in the comments section. Please post your thoughts and questions throughout the reading, especially from the little ones!

While singing through the book Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea by Jan Peck, Illustrated by Valaria Petrone, Deborah guides viewers to meet the animals under the sea, to learn about call and response form and explore the depths of the ocean – and their imagination.
