Would you like to be able to quickly evaluate the listening skills of your primary age music students? Listening glyphs make it easy, and John Williams music makes it fun!
What’s a Listening Glyph?
A glyph is a record of fact in picture form. A listening glyph indicates “facts” about students listening skills. How they respond, choosing one crayon or another to color a section of the picture, demonstrates their understanding.
Example: Students listen for “Steady Beat.” If they hear a steady beat they color the sky light blue. If they don’t hear a steady beat they color the sky orange.
Four Printable Listening Glyphs for the Jurassic Park movie soundtrack.
General Listening Glyph – The general listening glyph is for any piece of music from the Jurassic Park soundtrack. The worksheet will challenge students to listen for steady beat, tempo, amplitude (volume), big or small music ensemble, singers, and strings.
Listening Glyph for “Theme from Jurassic Park” – The second listening glyph is for the second track on the Jurassic Park CD.
Blank Listening Glyph – The blank listening glyphs give music teachers the most freedom. You’ll be able to use the fun pictures to engage your students, while asking them questions you would like them to listen for. Perhaps you just learned about the brass family. The freedom this worksheet provides will allow you to ask students if they heard a trumpet, french horn, trombone or tuba.
Extension Ideas and Instructions – A page is also included that provides extension ideas and instructions for use of the listening glyphs.
