As part of their composition unit, the fourth graders have composed music to accompany the book, "Rainbow Fish."
We started by reading the story to them, and asked them to think about what kind of music would go with each part of the story. What is the mood? What would the tempo be like? Then, each group was assigned a section of the book to work with.
Once they finished composing, we invited kindergarten and first grade classes to watch the performances!
