The Grade 1's played our first 'dream' game today. We listened to a piece of music and imagined what the song was about. As you listen to it, what pictures or story comes to mind? We talked about the feeling of the music. Most felt it was kind of scary sounding. We heard short, detached sounds and learned the word for this is 'staccato.' We talked about the instrument that makes the loud crashing sounds (cymbals) and practiced moving our bodies to it. We all agreed that the music got louder and faster at the end. It was like something crazy was happening.
