In the grade 5/6 classes, we just finished working on soundscape stories. In groups, students chose a fairy tale story and created background music using percussion instruments. Each group experimented with traditional and non-traditional ways to use the instruments and make sound effects for their stories.
On Monday, M. Ingola's class shared their stories and entertained the class with their unique ideas and dramatic reneditions of the fairy tales.
Lucky me! I teach arts education to all K-8 students :)
