Peter and the Wolf

We have been selected as a recipient of a Target Field Trip Grant!  In February, students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades will travel to St. Louis to hear a performance by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in Powell Symphony Hall.  Then we will spend the afternoon at the St. Louis Art Museum.  So excited!

In preparation students in 1st and 2nd grades have watched Peter and the Wolf and completed several listening excercises.  In the photos below students are preparing their listening cards for an activity where they listen to a segment of Peter and the Wolf and decide what character they hear by placing that characters card on the listening map (that just happens to look like a meadow!). 

Teachers:  You might enjoy some of these Peter and the Wolf resources.


  1. This looks like fun! May I ask what DVD (or videotape) of Peter and The Wolf you showed to the children beforehand?

  2. Congratulations on your grant! I would like to know which DVD or videotape of Peter and The Wolf you showed to your students. Thanks!

  3. Its the Disney version with Kirstie Alley. Its part real action and part animation.

  4. Hello. I love the idea of putting the pictures on a listening map. Did you get the map from a special book or can it be found online?

  5. I think that this activity is from the "Music Teacher's Almanac" by Loretta Mitchell. I've also made my own characters and sheet too with PowerPoint.
