Teach “Tick Tock”

Read the rhythm for song "Tick Tock”. Divide the class into two groups. Have one group read the words. Have the other group read the rhythms at the same time. Switch.

Sing the song for the students. As you sing or listen, point to the notes and have the students point as well so that they learn that the note that sounds higher is written in a higher space on the staff. The note that sounds lower is written in a lower space on the staff. Use the Tone Ladder on the song's page to help illustrate this motion. Sing the song all the way through and teach them the game. Play the game.
