These cards are designed to help students get started with their creative processes. With these cards, you can create a breeding ground for creative thinking and arouse astonishment in their musical work with the students. The students can feel co-ownership for their musical development from the beginning.
Use the cards as inspiration and talk with the students about which sounds suit the individual pictures. Write a story based on the pictures the student chooses and write the 6 selected picture numbers in the small boxes. You may use the same images several times. Using the same images several times, for example, can add up to a talk about the form in the music.
Cut out the cards, fold them in half and laminate them. You can make a hole in the top corner and insert a ring so that they are assembled. If you laminate your cards, your students may write their numbers with a pen in the small boxes.
Have fun with the cards,
