Hopes and Dreams for Music

Second Graders were asked what their hopes and dreams are for music.  This is a big question!  Not just what they want to do in music class, but what they might like to do with music in their lifetime.  The answers are very interesting.  Students mainly want to learn how to play an instrument, but there were other responses that may surprise you!  Those hopes and dreams were written on the backs of their stars.  Then students worked on coloring, cutting and pasting their stars onto their music folders.

What a great idea! I think I will do this with my kids later this year.

Thanks, Emily! One other step is to type up all their hopes and dreams on one paper but leave their names off the paper. They get a copy of this for their folders. At Open House they are able to show their parents what their hope/dream is and then a dialogue begins!
