PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The traditional folk song has been extended with an original B and C section making it a perfect piece for a musical experience or performance. The piece can be used to sing the entire form or enhance it by playing soprano recorders. Use the traditional A section to work on playing GABD on the recorder. The B section (with an original melody and lyrics) was written so my students could continue to practice reading and playing GAB on the recorder and be immediately successful. Adding the C section (with an original melody and lyrics) will allow your students to have additional experience playing GABD on the recorder. It is a perfect addition to your Orff and Kodaly curriculum.

The set of Lesson Plans and PowerPoint interactive slides include:

• 9 lessons each 6-10 minutes (8 pdf pages) plus an Orff Orchestration. The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the song, recorder, melody (Do Re Mi or Do Re Mi Sol), movement, form, dance and Orff Orchestration. Extensions and adaptions are also addressed.

• 58 slides created with PowerPoint 2010 (with 53 slides being teacher and/or student interactive) may be used to reinforce recorder playing, melodic reading and aurally identifying melodic patterns. You will have everything you need to teach all the lessons. The PowerPoint works very well with Smartboards - just touch the board to activate the sound effects and the animations.

It is a perfect piece to address curricular concepts while enjoying making music. It is also a great spiraling activity. Teach the song “Let Us Chase the Squirrel” along with the B section to your first year recorder players and bring it back the following year adding the A and the C section on the recorder. Or just use the lesson and ear training slides to teach the song “Let Us Chase the Squirrel” (Do Re Mi or Do Re Mi Sol).

The product was created to be compatible for Mac users. However, download the preview prior to purchasing to ensure that the animations and sound effects work for your platform.
