Anyone have a place or a resource where I can find a way to provide my children with an exam for these subjects? I can come up with questions myself but Im not sure Im very good at coming up with he best way to challenge their brain and memory.totheskydearParticipant
Earlier this year my kids were all obsessed with “Peer Gynt Suite”. For our exam that term, I had my son pretend each of the first four movements were the soundtrack to a scene in a movie, and asked him to describe what was happening in each “scene”. It was fun to read his answers. 🙂
For picture study I usually just have him describe his favorite picture from that term.MamatotoParticipant
For picture study through 3rd grade I asked, “Describe one of ___’s pictures we looked at this term. Beginning in 4th grade I asked “Describe two of ___’s pictures we looked at this term.”
For composer study I usually ask, “Tell about a composition by ___ you have heard.” Sometimes instead I will ask, “Describe the style of music composed by ___.”
We usually read biographies of our composers and so I also ask, “Tell something interesting about ___’s life.” Or I may word it, “Describe an interesting scene about ___ from our composer biography book.”
In 1st-2nd grade I have only asked one question that gave the child a choice, “Tell about a composition by ___ you have heard OR describe an interesting scene about ___ from our composer biography book.”
