Review “A Pizza Hut”

Song Used: A Pizza Hut

Review “A Pizza Hut”

Teach "A Pizza Hut" by rote. Add the actions as indicated in the teacher guide. When the students are really successful in unison, try dividing the class into two groups and singing both parts with actions.

Denise Tip: You can sing this as a partner song or a two-part round. I learned another verse not included in the recording.

This verse can be sung if you are using the accompaniment track, instead of repeating verse 1.
A Taco Bell, a Taco Bell, (join hands, swing arms like the clapper of a bell)
A Burger King (outline a crown)
and a Taco Bell. (repeat) (join hands, swing arms like the clapper of a bell)
Arby’s, Arby’s, (open mouth and motion as if biting into a huge sandwich)
A Taco Bell and (join hands, swing arms like the clapper of a bell)
A Burger King. (repeat) (outline a crown)

Review “Find the Easter Basket”

Song Used: Find the Easter Basket

Review “Find the Easter Basket”

This song is included to teach or review dynamics. Read the rhythms for the song, or write them on the board. Explain how the game is played. Don’t let the students shout. If the sound is harsh, have them clap the rhythm of the song softly and getting louder to show where the basket is, instead of singing.

Review the “Find the Easter Basket” game

Song Used: Find the Easter Basket

Review the “Find the Easter Basket” game

Choose one student to hide the Easter basket and another student to look for it. The student who is going to hunt for the Easter basket leaves the room while the “hider” hides it. When the finder returns, the class sings the song, singing softly when the finder is far away from the basket, and singing louder as the finder gets closer to the basket. The basket must be hidden in plain sight. The game continues until everyone in the class has had a turn to hide the basket or to find it.

Creative Ideas: Have the students choose four treats that they would like to get in an Easter basket and make them into a pattern. Have them play the patterns on body percussion or non-pitched instruments, or improvise melodies on barred instruments. Use the patterns as an introduction or an interlude between repetitions of the song.

Make five large construction paper eggs, or use five colored balloons, or five plastic Easter eggs. Choose five students to be Easter bunnies and hide the eggs, while the others close their eyes and sing the song. When the song is over, hunt for the eggs. The finders become the new Easter bunnies and hide the eggs. If an egg hasn’t been found, the hider gets to hide it again. The eggs must be hidden in plain sight.
