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.
