Sound Travels #1 - Music and Feelings

This week Water Group explored how music and sound are used to express our feelings. First, we have to make sure if we can identify our feelings and as you can see below the children were quite good at expressing them.

concerned and sad

Then we listened to different sounds and music and each child shared how the music made him/her feel and what they thought of. The children expressed their thoughts through different art forms as they listened to each piece of music. They were so indulged in the music that when it stopped, they all froze and asked: "Where's the music?" Some even said, "I need it to for my art."
