Play the 'Match the Melody' game - so-mi patterns
It's game #6 - choose level 1 for the so-mi patterns.
Watch the kids play the Lemonade game.
Zoom adaptation: Teacher sings the call - students sing the response.
Choose one child to act out a job. The students watching guess what they were.
In-person adaptation: Divide the class into 2 teams.
Listen to the recording and do hand signs to the song (or chant instead of singing).
Teams in turn choose one child to act out a job.
The students on the other team guess what they were.
Name the solfa notes in the song "Lemonade".
Note to teachers: Other solfa tools for the song include a tone ladder for showing where so and mi fit in the scale.
Accompany "Lemonade" on barred instruments and create a B section.
B section Ideas: Have the students choose four of their favorite kinds of drinks and make this into a word chain or word rhythm.
For example: Root beer, sprite, water, cola.
Play the word rhythm on pitched or non-pitched instruments.
Listen to the song "Hanukkah Fun".
To teach the song, sing a phrase and have the children sing back.
Play a line of music in the video and pause the recording.
Have the children sing it back.
Play the recording a second time, playing several lines, then having children sing back.
Continue until children can sing the whole song.
In-person: listen to the song and think about how you might create movement.
Watch the kids demo video of "Hanukkah Fun".
Try the movement that the students in the video do.
If you like it, keep it! If you have other ideas, try them out.
