Great for grades 4-6, this song has a great stick game that’s just the right amount of challenge for older kids. You can use rhythm stocks or rolled magazines taped firmly that the students click and toss with a partner. The song itself is great for teaching: The pick up note, since the pick-up and downbeat are reinforced by the stick motions The mi-re-do pattern for older beginners The solfege syllable “fa” The rhythm pattern “Dotted quarter note eighth note”
