This SMART NOTEBOOK lesson is appropriate for elementary music students in grades Kindergarten and 1st. grade. Students will be able to recite this cute Thanksgiving rhyme while keeping a steady heartbeat. A beat tapping chart with adorable graphics is provided. Other activities include a rhythm notation reading exercise in which the new rhythm of "ta-a" (half note) is introduced, reading the melodic notation on the staff, etc. There are several fun recordings of this rhyme available through many of the elementary music text book series that could be added to this lesson (example: Share The Music, Making Music, World of Music, Etc.). Adding instruments to this cute song is also a fun way to bring this classic Thanksgiving tune to life.
