Review “Find the Basket”

Song Used: Find the Basket

Review “Find the Basket”

“Find the Basket” is a hiding game. You can use it to teach or review dynamics. It's a simple reading song and can be used to have students create B sections or ostinato.

Read the rhythms. If you are teaching solfa, have the students read the melody using solfa. If not, use this melody to practice showing melodic contour - showing how the notes go up and down. This would be a good song to have the students draw the melodic contour.

Review the “Find the 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 they are far away from the basket, and singing louder as they get 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.
