Description

Mouse Mousie:

Number 5 in my series "Songs for the Kodaly Classroom"

ta ti-ti and s m d patterns

Although originally a chase game, this more “orderly” version ensures that all get a turn. Students sit in a circle, hands behind their backs. Teacher chooses one student to hide their eyes and another to walk around outside the circle with the mouse stuffy. At the end of the song the teacher points to one of the students in the circle. The mouse is put behind that student. The teacher sings “Who is the mouse?” (s mm d). The student answers “I am the mouse” (s mm d). The student who has their eyes closed listens, opens their eyes and identifies who was singing. It is then their turn to take the mouse around. As well as reinforcing the

7s m d pattern of the song, this game also encourages the students, eyes closed, to really listen – which direction did the answer come from, in which ear did they hear the answer better?
