Music Webs

We continued with the music webs that Wendy started. 

What feelings and ideas do you want to express?
What instruments and sounds will you use?

 Byron:
Happy music. The song is about my family.  I love being with them.  I want it to sound like a rock song!
Guitar, piano and trumpet.


Grace:
Sad music.  I miss my mom. It's hard to keep my stuffies in my cubby for a long long time.
Voice.

Jayla:
Happy music. I want to sing the ABC's.  It's happy.
Drum, voice and cymbals.

Say Hello

Verdi

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.



How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.




I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
