This resource kit includes all the things you need to teach "Fish Fish Little Fish," a hilarious little song I use with my younger students to teach/remember LA and DO. Use the song as is, teach in pieces, or mix and match as you see fit! The PowerPoint kit includes options for improvisation, ways to include Orff instruments, and more! Great for the Kodaly inspired classroom or those of us who are more Orffy at heart! See below.
