Kindergarten Music Class Exploring Instruments and Form



This piece is called Syncopated Clock by Leroy Anderson. Our Kindergarten music students were learning about musical form through listening and movement activities with this piece. We added a wood block for the clock sound on the A section, scarf movement for the legato smooth B section, and our favorite- jingle bells on the C section. We mapped out the sections on the board with pictures and later danced and marched around the room while listening as well. This was part of our clock unit (Hickory Dickory, Great Big Hall Clock, etc.) in the late fall.
