Orchestrate songs, stories, or poems with the Music-Go-Rounds Rhythm Instruments. Write the words on the whiteboard, and underline key words like character's names, action verbs, or descriptive terms. Select instruments to express those key words and place the MGR dot over those words. Distribute the instruments and perform your tone poem. Use narration and instruments sounds in place of the underlined words. Kids learn to listen, read, understand timbre, and so much more!
For further learning, combine this set with MGR Rhythms, Dynamics, Ensembles to orchestrate and perform rhythm grooves, rhymes, and story “tone poems.” Includes PDF Guide (download below) with activities and games for whiteboard, movement, ear training, and composing.
