A glyph is a pictorial representation of data. These clever worksheets ask students to color each object or portion of the picture based on what they hear. The glyphs are so versatile that they can work with virtually any listening piece! Some of the concepts covered: loud/soft, fast/slow, steady beat/no steady beat, lullaby, march, smooth/separated, mood and more!

Included in the kit are 7 glyphs: butterfly, penguin, house, Christmas tree, snowman, pizza and gingerbread man. Also included are suggestions for using the glyphs and a few ideas for listening examples.

These worksheets work best with Kindergarten, First and Second Graders, but could be adapted for use with Third Graders.

This kit contains PDF files. Please do not share these files. Purchase additional licenses to use in your district.
