Adding Music to a Story

Today we read one of our favourite books together, "Mortimer" by Robert Munsch. Because this was a very familiar text for the children, we added the element of music to help enhance some of the parts of the story, especially those where Mortimer made a lot of noise! The children had a blast!

Later on in the day we explored the idea of music helping to tell a story a little more deeply. The children worked in pairs to draw whatever came to mind as they listened to a piece of classical music. Once a child had a turn, they then explained their drawing to their partner. Roles reversed and then the other child had a turn drawing. (Thanks to Mrs. Bombardier for a great idea!)
