I hope you enjoyed listening, moving, drawing – and imagining – to the different pieces of music today. Which piece did you have the most fun with?
Teacher/parent/carer to student: Which piece of music did you enjoy making a picture of the most? Which piece did you enjoy moving to the most? Which of your pictures looks like the music? Which piece did you enjoy imagining the most?
Teacher checking in with student: Which piece of music did you enjoy making a picture of the most? Which piece did you enjoy moving to the most? Which of your pictures looks like the music? Which piece did you enjoy imagining the most? Perhaps your grownup could help you display your artwork. Or perhaps you can show me your pieces?
