My big push for the upcoming school year is to get my students doing more composition. This has been incredibly challenging. After my first Orff training when the building bricks were introduced it became easier for me to craft lessons for my students
Because my school is very structured and routined in their other classes, getting my students to think and create independently is very challenging so out first activity was to learn about the building bricks and then as a class, my 1st graders came up with the following items they associated with summer. These cards are what my students came up with.
We did not get too far with the entire composition activity so hopefully I will have an accompanying worksheet soon.
This is a set of 15 cards (hoping to add more soon!). The cards include an image, the word hyphenated into syllables, and its corresponding rhythm so that the cards are accessible to all of my students especially my ELL students.
