Feelings Music

Hi there

 

as part of my topic titled, ' whats inside,' I would like to spend some time next week doing lots of circle times etc; talking about how things make us feel etc etc. Had a lovely idea about getting children to listen to short pieces of different music / sounds and talk about how that makes us feel, e.g. scary, calm, angry etc. Does anyone know of a good cd to buy with short pieces of music or have tried something similar?? Or any other ideas that would work with this topic???

 

cheers guys

You should try and get your hands on the book 'Here we go round' by Jenny Mosley; circle time for 3-5year olds, it's full of great ideas..for example put a mirror in a box and get the children to pass it around the circle because 'there's something v special inside', after all of the children have experience the 'box' you can discuss why we are all special/ discuss thinks about our friends that are special etc. The looks on their faces as they watch each other open the box and share the surprise is really great! :o

 

Ps Yoga music works really well for exploring moods beyond happy/ sad ie calm.

 

Hope this helps!
