Simple! Use this PowerPoint to let students know when to sing a song out loud or when to "sing it in their head." I have seen others use a pop up puppet to do this exact same thing but I was trying to think of another way to do it just to add another tool in my tool belt. This seemed like an up to date way!
Generally I can go back and forth between two slides easily on my Smartboard but I made this PowerPoint with multiple slides so if you are not able to you can just advance through the slides as needed.
By having students sing in their head you can evaluate their efficiency in keeping a beat as well as a tonal center.
