Beethoven's Birthday

By Mary L. Bushong
1     Jan, Sarah, and Andrew opened their eyes wide. Their piano lesson room looked strange. It looked ready for a party!
 
2     "Hi, kids!" said Mrs. Almott. "I have something new for us to do today. Do you know what today is?"
 
3     The children shook their heads.
 
4     "Today is Beethoven's [BAY-toe-venz] birthday! We will have a treat to eat, and then we'll play a game. We will have a short lesson today. Does that sound like fun?"
 
5     "Do we still have to practice this week?" asked Andrew.
 
6     "Of course you do!" laughed Mrs. Almott.
 
7     The children put their books away and sat down at the small card table. Each place had a party hat and plate, a cup of milk, and a pencil and paper. Then the teacher put a plate of four cupcakes with candles on the table.
 
8     "What are these for?" asked Andrew as he played with the pencil and paper.
 
9     "They must be for the game," said Jan.
