This file contains slides for the French folk song, Frere Jacques (Are You Sleeping?). This song helps to prepare, present, and practice a half note.
Hardest Rhythmic Concept: ta-a
Other Rhythmic Concepts: ta, ti-ti
I have included a copy of the song in case it is not one from your folk song collection.
This will help you:
- Prepare, present, and practice ta-a
There are French and English versions of the following slides:
- Icons to keep the beat to the song
- Icons to show the rhythm of the song
- Hearts representing the beat in preparation for introducing the half note
- Slides dictating the rhythm without a half note (shows quarter notes tied together, and explains what a tie is)
- Introduction slides for ta-a (with other syllable choices and a blank slide for those that use something else)
- Rhythmic notation of the song in standard notation
- Slide with original song notation
Also, included in the Half Note Game file:
- Interactive game for practicing clapping rhythms with half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, and quarter rests.
- Maps for finding France on the map
- Printable student beat and rhythm charts
- Printable cut-outs for students to practice putting the song in order
This file is over 120 PAGES!
