Kindergarten: Instrument Hoop Conducting!

Kindergarten students have been learning to play a variety of Non-Pitched Percussion instruments. Today we played "Hoop Conducting" to reinforce playing technique. This activity also allowed kinders to begin learning how to follow the cues of a conductor.

Each student was given an instrument (either Rhythm Sticks to TAP, Jingle Bells to SHAKE, or Sand Blocks to SCRAPE). One of each instrument was also placed inside a hula hoop in the middle of the carpet. The conductor would let each instrument know when to play by standing in the hoop with the matching instrument. Some conductors were tricky by standing in two hoops, or by using their hands to have all three instruments play at the same time! Great job Kinders!
