This fun & colorful POWER-POINT lesson is appropriate for your young elementary music students in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Students will practice their skills and knowledge of known rhythm "ta rest" (quarter rest) as well as prepare to learn the new concept of Solfege tone "Do." Activities in this file include:
1. A song lyrics page.
2. A cute heartbeat tapping chart with dog icons as the heartbeat.
3. A rhythm icon/notation tapping chart with large and small dogs used to represent the ta's and ti-ti's.
4. A rhythm dictation page in which the rhythm icons, cute adorable dog bones, fill in on top of the dog heartbeats with each click of the mouse.
5. A 2nd rhythm dictation page in which the rhythm icons are real rhythm notation symbols. They also fill in on top of the heartbeats with each click of the mouse.
6. A combined melodic & rhythmic icon notation reading/tapping page in which the new mystery Solfege tone(s) "do" and "re" are covered up and kept secret.
7. A melodic reading activity in which dog icons are positioned melodically & rhythmically on the staff to match the notation of the song. The mystery Solfege tone's are still kept secret but with the simple click of the mouse, their position on the staff is revealed.
8. A page dedicated to the introduction of new Solfege tone "do." "Re" is kept secret throughout this entire lesson.
9. Another song reading activity with real melodic notation on the staff.
10. And finally, a labeling/identifying activity to test the students' understanding of the relationships between Solfege tones d-m-s-l using note head icons. Instructions on how to use this activity are included within the PPT "normal" view mode below that individual slide.
This one will definitely be a favorite in your repertoire!! Your students will ask for it over and over!!
