12 PUZZLES for «The Four Seasons»

(0)
12 online puzzles with all the pictures Vivaldi described in his famous concertos named “The Four Seasons”. The pictures were hand-painted by the artist Petros Gkosiopoulos. The puzzles may be used as a game during an online lesson or as a leisure activity at home. They have pictures for every movement of Vivaldi’s concertos and may be used complementary to any lesson about the Four Seasons and Vivaldi. Children may enjoy the vivid colours in the paintings (bright yellow for summer, green for spring, red for autumn, white and blue for winter) while remembering of Vivaldi’s intentions. Each puzzle consists of 40 pieces for children 7-11 years old. You can change the number of tiles from 24 to 300 if you click “Play as” on the right top of the picture. This way you choose the level of difficulty depending on who plays it. The paintings in the puzzles are some of the paintings included in the listening maps of my book (available at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/listening-maps-and-teaching-suggestions-for-antonio-vivaldi-s-the-four-seasons-11872065). In the book they are presented in a different way, suitable for the understanding of the musical structure.

TIME SIGNATURE BINGO

(0)
This 3x3 BINGO game presents different time signatures used in different music traditions. 2/4, 3/4,4/4, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 9/8,11/8, 12/8 time signatures visualized as geometric shapes. It is created as a Google Presentation file and can be played online, or in class if you print and laminate the cards. Instructions are written in the speaker notes of the presentation. Includes 1 Teacher card 24 Students cards A list with music suggestions for each time signature • 2/4, 3/4,4/4, 6/8, 9/8 & 12/8 are very common to the western culture. Even though they cover the majority of western children listening experiences, I believe that practice in less common time signatures deepens the students awareness of how to define time signature (counting the strong and weak beats of a musical piece). • 5/8, 7/8, 9/8 are very common to Greek, Bulgarian and generally East Mediterranean traditional music. The game provides a great opportunity for the teacher to include students music traditions and preferences by selecting a variety of musical works with a strong sense of the beat.

Simple TIME SIGNATURE BINGO

(0)
This 3x3 BINGO game presents the three time signatures music teachers mostly use. **2/4 , 3/4, 4/4 ** They are presented in 3 ways: • hearts. We talk about beat as the heart of music. The first heart is bigger as it sounds louder than the others. • geometric shapes. Each shape represents one bar and its sides are the number of beats it has • notes, with an accent on the first beat. I believe that this visualization helps young students realize and practice these three common time signatures with success. It can be found in a Google Presentation file. Instructions are written in the speaker notes of the presentation. The game can be played online, or in class if you print and laminate the cards. Includes 1 Teacher card 24 Students cards A list with music suggestions for each time signature

Listening Maps and Teaching Suggestions for Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” 2nd edition

(0)
12 original coloured listening maps that make Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” easy to understand. They show all the pictures Antonio Vivaldi wanted to describe in his music. The pictures are hand-painted by the artist Petros Gkosiopoulos with great details and the most vivid colours. Designed for 3rd-6th grade but may be used for younger or older children and adults as well. Additional material useful in the class is included (b&w maps to share in the class, maps with empty space for children to draw their own pictures, puzzles). A historical introduction about Vivaldi and his era, explanations on how to follow the maps and suggestions for creative teaching in music, the arts and movement are also included. The Listening maps and the teaching suggestions can be used by: music teachers working in general schools, in music schools or in private studios. every teacher who would like to plan writing, moving or painting activities with his/her students inspired by the Four Seasons. parents who would like to listen to this piece of music with their children. For Spring 1, Summer 1, Autumn 3, Winter 1 I created: A coloured map with pictures drawn by an artist. The same map in black & white processed so that it can be reproduced in a more user-friendly manner than it would be if you simply selected the b&w option of printer for the coloured map. A map without the pictures. Children are asked to draw them as they wish. (Spring 1, Summer 1 & Winter 1.) A puzzle with the pictures in random order. Children can be asked to cut them out and put them in the right order while listening to the music. For Autumn 1 and Winter 3 I created: A coloured map with pictures drawn by an artist. The same map in black & white so that it can be reproduced and shared in class. For Spring 2, 3, Summer 2, 3, Autumn 2, Winter 2 I created: A coloured map with pictures drawn by an artist. A black & white map where the main idea is written on the top of the paper and children are asked to draw a picture following the composer’s idea. In most of them I also included the structure of the piece. For Summer 3 I created a graphic map of the piece.

A Paper Concert!

A Paper Concert!

(0)
An e-book with ideas about making music with different kinds of paper based on a story. Planned for 1rst grade students, it doesn’t require any musical knowledge and may be used by any teacher who loves music and sound exploration. The story “A Paper Concert!” is an adaptation of a Greek book by Antigoni Parousi that is now out of stock and is not published any more. The little paper wants to find out what he will become when growing up. He meets different paper-heroes who give him their advice till he becomes a kite! The story and the activities I suggest focus on sounds. Children may use the paper-heroes of the story to produce different sounds while listening to the story. This exploration leads to thoughtful music making with paper (improvisation and performance of a verbal score). Key stage 1: experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music.
