I’m studying and need help with a English question to help me learn.
Music Sounds Around Us: Recognizing sounds is the beginning skill young children need to learn about music.
- Go on a 30 minute (silent-no talking!) Sound Walk. Take a child with you if possible.
- Note the different sounds – human, mechanical, flora or fauna, and of course, the many different musical sounds that surround us at all times.
- List the sound source and think about a sound word for some of the sounds you heard—a flag might be “flapping” or make a “whap-whap” sound. Leaves might crunch and crackle or whoosh.
Heels click or shoes thud. What kind of music did you hear, where, or on what occasion?
- Write a short (no more than one paragraph) sound story, poem, or haiku based on your walk and the sounds you heard.
Please create a page for the sounds you heard and another page for the paragraph.
