Looking for books to use in music during I Love To Read Month? Look no further! Here's a lesson to go with Denise Fleming's "In The Tall, Tall Grass"!
Read “In The Tall, Tall Grass" by Denise Flemming with students.
Adding the ascending and descending phrases for “In the tall, tall grass” during the first read will speed up the learning process if you are short on time!
Students choose classroom instruments to represent each creature and play the rhythm pattern for their specific phrase.
Some students can also play each "creature phrase" on barred instruments using So & Mi (G & E).
A few students can play the ascending and descending “In the tall, tall grass" patterns on the barred instruments as well.
Your students may also have some fantastic ideas to add, change or extend the story - have fun with it!
