A favorite of many elementary Kodaly classrooms, this groups of slides can help you students prepare, present, and practice (PPP) Re.

This product does not have step-by-step instructions on how to teach this song but is rather set up in a logical way that allows the teacher to use their expertise to guide students through the process of preparing, presenting, and practicing Re and Ta/Ti-Ti. Ultimately, however, the teacher must use their own knowledge of how to teach music to best serve their students.
A few suggested activities are included.
