Language, Cultural Education, Art and Music Class
Gerdou class has multiple sections based on the children’s age and fluency. In addition to formal reading and writing lessons, each class also includes music, art and cultural education portions where children take virtual trips to different regions of Iran to discover its geography and diverse culture. Gerdou groups will focus on different aspects of Iranian culture such arts and architecture, literature and folklore, landmarks and historical sites, handicrafts, colorful cuisine during the term.
Children in Class F (Gerdou) will perform in a choir. They will learn how to sing a selected Persian song in an interactive and lively setting. Studying one line (Beit) per week, the students get to learn the words’ pronunciations, meanings, and the story behind the song and its original singer, as well as musical aspects such as form and accuracy of rhythms and melody.
The classes will meet once a week via Zoom but we’ll also use Google Classroom to share assignments, recordings, weekly videos and other related material for practice purposes.
* Children who are already Pardis students will continue with their own groups. If your child is a new student, you’ll receive an evaluation form upon registration so we can place your child in the appropriate class (based on their age and fluency).
