Grizzly Bear--Musical Opposites

In PreK-1st grade, we've been talking about musical opposites the past few weeks.  We've talked about high and low, fast and slow, and this week it was loud and soft.  First graders learned the musical terms "forte" and "piano" to describe loud and soft music.  All grades learned a song with loud and soft and got to play a fun guessing singing game.  This is one of my all-time favorite activities to do with the little ones--it's just so much fun!!  

The song is called "Grizzly Bear."  During the course of the song, we sneak up on a hibernating bear and wake him up.  When we act it out, our sleeping grizzly gets tapped awake by another student.  Upon awakening, the grizzly has to guess who tapped him or her.  It's a lot of fun and really cute to watch!  Below, you'll find pictures and videos of the game in action from Mrs. Hinson's class and Mrs. Rutledge's class.
