Instrument Play

Kindergartens are learning about different instruments in the music room.  We have been practicing how to play a variety of instruments and the different sounds each make.

One of my favorite winter stories is "The Snowy Day" by Jack Ezra Keats.  As the students listened to the story the first time, we acted out the parts.  Second, we picked instruments that would go well to make sounds effects.  The students practiced playing their parts and were VERY patient to wait their turns.


Where are the cymbals?   Where is the wind chime?  What color is the slide whistle?  What sound does the two-tone block make?  Which instrument sounds like bells?

What color is the timpani drum?  What kind of sound does Ethan's instrument make?  What kind of tree do you see in the picture?  What is the funny name of the two drum heads?  What instrument is made out of rosewood?

What do the 2 long sticks sound like?  Who's instrument sounds like a machine?  Which instrument would you pick if you wanted to make a horse gallop sound?  How many triangles can you see?  What sound does the finger cymbals make?  
We also played an instrument passing game as we learned to share, pass and play the instrument correctly.

What animal does the guiro (gweero) look like?
