Product Description
Pentatonic Solfege Reading Practice

This old Valentine folk song can be used to practice reading pentatonic (do re mi so la) melodies through melodic contour, solfege and staff notation slides. It also provides a way to teach/review quarter note and eighth note (ta titi) rhythm patterns from steady beat icons, pictoral (pre-reading) notation, and finally notation symbols. This allows you to use the same song across multiple grade levels for teaching and working on different concepts.

A second "modified" version is also included to allow you to teach the same lesson to students who are not allowed to sing or participate in holiday songs. The "Valentine" words are removed and replaced with alternate lyrics for students to enjoy during any season.

*I use the recording of this song from the 1st grade "Making Music" textbook series. The title of the piece in that book is called "Valentine Dance." And, instructions for a little dance that goes along with this piece is included in the teacher's edition of the text.
