Are you looking for a way to bring fun pieces and body percussion to your beginning music students? This positive, upbeat song is a great introduction to body percussion. Plus, it is a great way to include some world music in your lessons!
This activity uses body percussion pictures with and without children for little ones to follow. It is also extremely helpful for special needs students. You, the teacher, progress through the piece by following the numeric cues. Numbers are also included at the bottom (up to 8) for students to count along and stay on the beat. Lead the group to encourage and practice steady beat or let students discover how to make sounds with their bodies. No specific notation is included.
Due to copyright, the piece is not included, but can easily be found.
