Great for Valentine's Day or any time of the year, "Magic Words," a song about using manners, leads primary age children through a lesson for performing an ostinato pattern. The students begin by learning the song "Magic Words", and then they add a simple ostinato pattern using first speech, then body percussion, and finally playing the ostinato pattern on un-pitched percussion instruments to accompany the song. Also included in this lesson is a B section which consists of a spoken rhyme and rotation, giving the lesson a game like feeling while meeting many music objectives. This product includes not only the lesson, but also materials for creating the rotation "game", and the sheet music for the song! My students loved this lesson, and I love that it is not only an effective music lesson but also that they get a review of using their manners.
