Makin’ Music with Ms. Linda

Hello Parents!

 

Here’s what we did at music today:

We did a quick review of the 4 previous movements of “Carnival of the Animals” since this is the last week I will feature it.  I brought out the 4 percussion instruments we had chosen from my big grey bin a couple of weeks ago to see if they remembered which we had agreed would accompany each of the movements best.  I played my guitar differently for each of the 4 verses of the hello song, then asked everyone which of the movements I was trying to match.

  • The Hello Song (“Carnival of the Animals” style!)
  • Eggs Song:  “Simple Gifts” (we compared three very different versions of this that I played from i-Tunes)
  • “Feliz Navidad”
  • Sticks Song:  “Walking in a Winter Wonderland”
  • Percussion Play-Along:  Early American Settlers Music
  • Mystery Instrument: I brought in a traditional flute, a water flute, and a terra cotta bird whistle, and we discussed the differences and how each instrument works.

 

Take Care,

Linda Bunting
