The familiar children's song, "Apple Tree," contains many rhythmic and melodic elements appropriate for grades K-3. The packet will be useful for both Orff and Kodaly trained teachers as well as those who take an eclectic approach to music education.
You ge the song, melodic and rhythmic worksheets, an Orff arrangement, a game, extensive teaching suggestions, and keys for the worksheets.
The rhythmic worksheets include quarter and eighth notes while the melodic worksheets cover so-mi, and so-la-mi patterns. Either could be used to practice these elements or as assessments.
The Orff arrangement would be appropriate for 4th and 5th graders. The melody line would be good practice for the lower range of the soprano recorder.
