As I was transitioning from "summer mode" to "school mode" a few years ago, I wrote this song while picking blueberries. I have found it to be a great song for the first music class of the year! This song and lesson feature...
- a melody relying heavily on the easily singable so-mi interval
- subject matter transitioning from a summer activity to school
- a fun way to learn names
- opportunities for individualization
- opportunities for solos, movement, and group singing
The .zip file includes sheet music with the melody line and chords, lesson ideas in that same document, a sample mp3 performance recording, and an accompaniment recording. The accompaniment recording allows space for 30 names to be sung in the refrain. (Note: Preview document is distorted, but purchased document will be good quality!)
I hope you enjoy "Blueberry, Bumblebee!"
