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. Use the traditional A section to work on playing BAG on the soprano recorder. The B and C section was written so my students could continue to practice reading and playing BAG on the recorder and be immediately successful. A descant using high C and D is also added so you are able to spiral the song the next year. It is a perfect addition to your Orff and Kodaly curriculum. Incorporating the optional Orff arrangement allows it to be an excellent performance piece.

The set of Lesson Plans and PowerPoint interactive slides include:

• 8 lessons each 6-12 minutes (8 pdf pages) plus an Orff Orchestration along with an adapted orchestration for 3rd grade. The lesson plans include detailed instructions for teaching the song, recorder, rhythm, melody, movement, form, descant and Orff Orchestration.

• 57 slides created with PowerPoint 2010 (with 36 slides being teacher and/or student interactive) may be used to reinforce recorder playing 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 “Merrily We Roll Along” to your first year recorder players, along with the B section and bring it back the following year adding the C section and the descant. Or just use the lesson and ear training slides to teach the song “Merrily We Roll Along”.
