La classe, un espace privilégié pour sensibiliser les élèves de maternelle à leur environnement sonore

Abstract : This work is in a sensitive approach to children's sound universe, in direct connection with experimentation and verbalization. The aim of our study was to show that through sensory experience and verbalization, kindergarten children could become aware of their sound environment. We started from a very simple observation: there was too much noise in the class. To enable the students to realize it, we have set up playful and creative workshops involving and moving the children in the different spaces of the class. We used several media such as sound recordings, symbolic representations or identification games. The phases of verbalization were an essential element in our work as we solicited them during all the sessions. A study of emotions was also conducted to allow students to better express their feelings. The main results were those that were expected, and even more. There is less noise in the classroom, the children are distributed well in the different spaces and they have well invested the different rules elaborated and put in place by them. Moreover, this work has helped them to build themselves as a person, in the context of personal development but also as a citizen in the making. They have built beautiful dimensions such as sensitivity, respect for law and rule and commitment. To conclude, experiments and verbalization had a real impact on children's awareness of their sound world. We can quite imagine this application to other areas and other levels.
