I have been exploring ways to bring music into our classroom. One of the skills that will enhance the children’s enjoyment of music is the ability to listen carefully. The Listening Walk by Paul Showers is a beautiful way to share the wonder of making silence with young children. Marnie at CarrotsAreOrange shared a great link to the BBC’s free sound library which might be a great way to take a “listening walk” on a rainy day. Another of my favorites is Sound Bingo which will be making an appearance in our classroom later in the year!
