Product Description

Want to know what your primary students are hearing in the music you share, and open their ears to even more? Listening glyphs allow K-3 students to express what they hear by choosing one crayon or the other, and allow teachers to assess the understanding of an entire class in a glance.

What's a Listening Glyph?

Glyphs are pictures of facts. A listening glyph asks students to identify the "facts" about a musical selection, and then express what they are hearing by choosing one crayon or another.

Example: Students are asked to listen for "Steady Beat." If they hear a steady beat in the music they color the Leprechaun's skin pink. If they don't hear a steady beat they color the Leprechaun's skin blue.


General Listening Glyph - The first listening glyph is set up for general use with any piece of music. Students will listen for steady beat, tempo, amplitude (volume), timbre (color), if it's a small or big music group, if they hear repeated music, and staccato or legato.

Listening Glyph for "Caledonia" by Celtic Woman - This listening glyph asks students to assess a selection by the popular Celtic music group Celtic Woman. A video is available on YouTube.

Blank Listening Glyph - The final version of the glyph gives the greatest freedom. Blanks are provided so you can chose the things that you'd like your students to listen for.

About This Activity - The final page includes instructions and a list of 12 popular Celtic music soloists and groups.
