We had music classes in the library where we read a storybook called Every Little Thing inspired by the Bob Marley song "Three Little Birds". We even learned the verse and chorus and some got up to dance as they sang.
We also watched the 1949 Disney film, Peter and the Wolf, a classic story-song.
Each character has its own instrumentation that we listened for.
We then drew pictures inspired by the story as we listened to the orchestration again.
