Inspired by the sound of the wind outside our school, we went on a listening walk on Thursday. We listened hard, and heard:
Cars, and one engine starting up.
A yellow bird cheeping at a bird feeder.
Branches skuttering together.
A tin can rolling downstairs.
Our neighbors’ footsteps.
A crow calling out “Leave! Leave!”
Wind chimes that sounded like tinkling music and cymbals.
And the children thought maybe we heard a dolphin and a peregrine falcon. This was unconfirmed by teachers.
