Al Citron is one of my students' favorite Spanish songs! We have done this many different years for Hispanic Heritage Month, and they love it! This year, we sang the folk song and played the game, but also used the song to help us learn about dotted quarter note-single eighth note rhythms.
I have used the song and game with 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade, but dotted quarter notes appear in fifth grade in my concept sequence, so that is the grade that really dives into this lesson!
This product includes a lesson plan based on the song Al Citron, game directions, a powerpoint that shows the rhythm, solfege, presenting doted quarter notes, and more (in regular AND stick notation), and printable pages with Spanish fruit name composition cards and worksheets!
