Listening Walks and Singing Maps
Cardany, Audrey Berger
General Music Today, v24 n3 p34-38 Apr 2011
The Listening Walk by Paul Showers and illustrated by Aliki, and "It's My City: A Singing Map" by April Pulley Sayre with pictures by Denis Roche, provide two examples of texts that aid in building children's phonological awareness for reading and music. The author describes each narrative and discusses its function as a springboard to composition lessons in a primary and an upper-elementary general music classroom. Visual aids and examples of student work are presented. (Contains 8 figures.)
