Today we finished our Persian March from Fun with Composers. It has been a lot of fun for the kids and easy to get them involved. I loved discovering the body movement with the drum stimulus. The dancing, singing and instruments made this a great way to have fun with a classical piece. The kids have really enjoyed pretending to be pirates. Tonight we are performing it in front of the parents. I have had four classes each day ranging from 1st grade until 5th grade. Tonight they will all perform the piece together with instruments! It should be fun!
I also finished a sound story for Noah’s Ark today. We read a story about Noah’s Ark and added some instruments sounds to different parts of the story to bring it alive. So when it rained, drip, drop, drip we added a triangle or a agogo bell. The children got to pick whatever instrument they thought went with the sound. If we need a animal roaring or flapping its wings they chose another instrument. By the end we had a great story with a lot of sound!
