The first slide of this PowerPoint is animated to show the melodic contour for BHBL. With each click of the mouse each ball icon appears then moves up or down when needed to match the contour. With one more click the solfege "so" appears to the left to aide in reading the pattern as either "so high so mi, etc." or "so la so mi, etc." depending on students' progress. The next slide then shows the melodic contour, adding staff lines from between so and mi, then the line directly above so, introducing/practicing la. You can then read the pattern from here or continue adding the other lines of the staff.
