Sing and play along to "Welcome to Music!"

COMING SOON - DEMO VIDEO FOR THE DANCE
We've modified the clapping game for Hot Cross Buns:
- Instead of clapping hands with a partner, pat hands on your desk.
- every time you sing (or hear) the word "cross" you cross your arms.
This shows the notes mi, re, do on the tone ladder.
Can you do the handsigns that are shown?
The picture shows the solfa notes for Hot Cross Buns.
m is for mi, r is for re and d is for do.
Sing the song in solfege. The last note is missing. Do you know what it is?
If you thought it was do, you are right.
Watch and Listen to the Easter Basket Game.
Play the video again, and sing along.
Adapt for Zoom or in-person: play a basket hiding game.
Color and cut out the 4 baskets that are given.
Write a 4 beat rhythm in each basket.
Cut out the baskets.
Choose 1-3 students to be the 'hiders."
The 'hiders" put hands behind their back, and pass the "basket" back and forth. Students in the class guess which hand the basket is in. Give a point for each correct guess. (Keep track of who has had turns!)
After students have created their 4 beat rhythms and cut out their baskets, have them create a 16 beat rhythm composition.
Decide how to play it. (body percussion, instruments, desk drum)
Do they like it? If they do, keep it. If not, try it a new way.
You could use the Easter Basket song as an A section and the new rhythm compositions as a B section.
