This is a fun elementary music lesson featuring the Spanish folk song "Que Llueva." This lesson has the song in Spanish and in English with a rhythmic composition activity to it. I used this lesson with Kindergarten and 1st grade, but it could be tiered up to 2nd grade. The folk song features sol-mi patterns with one low do, quarter notes, and barred eighth notes, as well as single eighth note pick ups (which we do not talk about in kindergarten!).
All pages are done in stick notation (Kodaly/Orff) and again in regular rhythmic notation. Use whichever one you prefer!
My students had a blast learning this song, learning about beat and rhythm, creating a rain storm to go with the song (including the rain stick!), and composing ta and ti-ti rhythms. I hope you students have as much fun as mine did!
