Today, we will be responding to music. We will use our Observational Skills and listen to this song by K'NAAN called "Wavin' Flags" Listen carefully to the song! Suggestion: Listen to the whole song first. Then, replay the song and pause it every so often to think about what you are hearing. *Tune into the dynamics of the song - Is it loud? Is it quiet? How does it sound at the very beginning of the song? How does it sound a little later? *Tune into the tempo of the song - Is it fast? Is it slow? How does it sound at the very beginning of the song? How does it sound a little later? *Tune into the tone of the song - What is the feeling of the song? How does the song make you feel? How would you move/dance to this song? Don't forget to tap to talk about the song. Learning Intentions: To begin to identify different elements of music. To begin to make thoughtful observations to their own and others music. To begin to describe feelings and reactions to their own and others music. To begin to use vocabulary to describe various pieces of music and songs.
