Product Description
Let's play instruments with this cumulative song!

This familiar folk song is perfect for practicing ta, titi, rest, and ta-ah (quarter note, eighth notes, quarter rest, and half note) rhythms while adding some instrumental accompaniment. Slides feature sheet music, a SafeShareTV video link to hear the song and rhythm accompaniment slides to include 10 different classroom rhythm instruments with rhythms to accompany the piece. Students read and play each accompaniment separately on each verse, then combine with previous verses, as the song is cumulative.

Kodaly Rhythms used: ta titi rest and ta-ah (quarter note, eighth note pair, quarter rest, half note)

Orff Percussion Instruments used:
Finger Cymbals
Cow bell
