Want to know what your primary students are hearing in the music you share, and open their ears to even more? Listening glyphs allow K-3 students to express what they hear by choosing one crayon or the other.
What's a Listening Glyph?
Glyphs are pictures of facts. A listening glyph asks students to identify the "facts" about a musical selection, and then express what they are hearing by choosing one crayon or another.
Example: Students are asked to listen for "Steady Beat." If they hear a steady beat in the music they color Peter's skin pink. If they don't hear a steady beat they color Peter's skin blue.
1) Peter's Theme Listening Glyph - Students will listen for steady beat, tempo, amplitude (volume), bright/happy or dark/scary (tonal quality), legato/staccato or only staccato, repeated music, and if they hear strings alone or all of the instruments of the orchestra.
2) Wolf's Theme Listening Glyph - Students will listen for steady beat, tempo, pitch/amplitude, bright/happy or dark/scary (tonal quality), legato/staccato or only staccato, repeated music, and what instruments are supporting the french horns.
3) Blank Listening Glyph - The final version of the glyph gives the greatest freedom. Blanks are provided so you can chose the things that you'd like your students to listen for.
4) About This Activity - The final page includes instructions and extension ideas.
