1 Welcome to Music
Find some scrapers and play along!
In this lesson, you will:
This is a fun story.
If you can find a storybook of it, read/sing the story to the children.
Students may enjoy illustrating the story if this was left out last week.
Watch the video to see how the notes go higher and lower.
Your students may be able to clap the rhythm of the song.
You may not be allowed to play the hiding game for this song.
Give each student one "egg" using the template given.
Invite 1-3 students to be egg 'hiders." (the more students that are 'hiders' the quicker the game will go)
They will hide an egg behind their back, then pass it from hand to hand during the song.
At the end of the song, students can guess which hand the egg is in. Keep track of turns, and keep track of who had the most correct guesses.
Use one of the "eggs".
Have the students clap their egg rhythm, and have the class echo.
To extend, have students create and play rhythm compositions using more than one egg rhythm.
Listen to the song.
Play the song again and sing along.
This is usually played as a circle chase game.
Adapt: Choose 2 racers and have them race around their desks and sit down. At home, racers could race around a chair.
Choose 2 racers and give them a challenge.
Choose 2 competitors and have them play rock, paper, scissors.
Bev Cheverie idea: During intro I give a student 2 Easter eggs. They and all students have heads down so no one knows who the bunny is. During the short song, repeated verse, the student bunny puts an egg on two students’ desks and quickly and quietly back to their seat. The two only get to guess who was the bunny at the end of the song. The bunny gets to ‘reveal’ if not guessed. Heads down again. I pick the bunny everytime I always pick singers and no peekers. Use Covid style paper eggs.
This worksheet includes the instruments used, concept highlighted (smooth or bumpy music), and the students get to color the rooster and the hens.
