Mary Amato has many song links with her books- check out these tunes while you read!
See how sound waves travel through instruments, air, and water.
Musication, Alla Turka
Rochester Kids! You are in for a treat today! Follow the YouTube Link below for an opportunity to create your own band or ensemble at home. You could actually work by yourself, but for extra fun, grab your mom, dad, or anyone at home to join you.
Next, grab a cardboard box, kitchen utensils, a plastic lid, and a metal can.
Then, follow the animation with your “instruments.” If needed, you could play as many as two parts at a time for an extra challenge. But you could also leave out some parts if it’s just you today! Either way, follow the animation, and play along with the “Alla Turka!” And if you have more time, explore other “Musication” videos, adding your new instruments.
NOTE: The creator also suggests adding movement for each of the four parts (clap, jump, dab, etc.), which would be a great way to get up and move!
Stomp Lesson Part 2
Activity: Create your own version of a STOMP song with your siblings or your family! Use whatever you have around your home! But remember, create MUSIC....not just NOISE! No 2-year old style (unless, your 2-year old brother or sister is joining you. haha) Your song will sound better with a steady beat, and organized patterns of sounds. Record yourself and share with family and friends!
