Part 1 of our blog series is a project that Steph did with her Ryerson students, years ago when she started at that school. She wanted to get to know the students better and wanted to know what their favourite activities in Music were before finalizing any programming.
Steph's theme for the community artwork that first year at Ryerson was "Ryerson Hands Make Music". Every student in the school ended up creating a hand outline with a phrase on it that began with "My hands...". Students had to finish the phrase with their own idea such as "My hands play the drums" and decorate the hand cut-out.
We would love to hear any activities that you do with your classes to help build relationships! We are always looking for ideas!
