This fun song is great for preparing and presenting the rhythmic element of "syncopa" (eighth-quarter-eighth). Further more, it contains ti and fa, so it can be brought back later for melodic practie.
Also included in this file are two "mystery song" PDFs in which students must decode from the rhythm or the melody that the mystery song is "Epo I Tai Tai". One mystery song is tailored to melodic decoding and one is tailored to rhythmic decoding. This is a great informal assessment for inner hearing.
Additionally, the song notation and extension activities, including a hand clapping game and a stick game, are included!
