This week in Ms. Selimos' Grade 1/2 class, we listened to different musical selections and discussed different questions like:
-how does the music make you feel?
-if the music was in a movie, what would the movie be about?
-what colours or pictures do you "see" when you listen to the piece?
Our selection this week was the Overture from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by Felix Mendelssohn. A lot of students made connections with different places and movies. As an exercise, I asked the students to write and draw what about the music. Check out their ideas below!
