Sunrise Story (JK)

This week in our music room, JK students explored the element of the form in music through a Reggio-inspired activity that focuses on the process of Responding. I played the composition “Sunrise” from the Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofe. The children quietly listened to the music and drew the “story” of the sunrise portrayed in the piece. I stimulated their imagination by asking questions about the colours they choose, the quietest and loudest parts of the piece, and the feelings the music was evoking.

“My sunrise is magic.”
“The sunrise makes me feel beautiful.”
“These colours make me happy.”

From Performing Arts teacher, Ms. Kovac
