Play the "New Shoes" game

All the students in the class sit in a circle and close their eyes. As they sing the song, give out three different kinds of shoes or pictures of shoes. The students who were given the shoes sing alone, telling the class which shoe they have. All the students open their eyes, and guess who has which shoe. The students with the shoes will choose the next student to receive it. Tell them to try to find a student who hasn’t had a turn.

Create a Rondo with Different Kinds of Shoes

Use the interactive activity, or use real shoes to create a word rhythm pattern.

For example: Slipper, slipper, boot, boot.
Sandal, flip-flop, clog.

Have students choose instruments or body percussion and decide how to play the word rhythm.

Sing the song as the A section, and sing the shoe rhythm as the B.

If each student or groups of students (in-person) creates a rhythm, you could create a rondo.

An Orff arrangement of the song follows.

Playing and Creating: Create a rhythm ostinato using shoes. Look around the classroom and brainstorm a list of the kinds of shoes that the children are wearing: sandals, running shoes, sneakers, high tops, flip flops, boots, etc. Use the names of the shoes to create a rhythm ostinato. For example: sneaker, sneaker, sneaker, boot. When children create rhythm ostinatos encourage them to use sounds more than once, just as composers do. Have the children choose unpitched percussion instruments to play the ostinato.

“Got A Hat Hat” is an action song that uses a variety of tempos. When the students know all the words to the song, ask each of them to bring a hat and try to learn the actions that are given in the words of the song. As the song gets faster and faster, the actions will be more and more challenging to complete.
