Spring weather brings lots of rain, and with the rain comes MUD!

This fun song has students moving, singing, playing instruments and improvising. Students move through "mud puddles" while singing the melody and then chant about the gooey mud.

Move to the barred instruments for steady beat practice and even some improvising in the pentatonic.

This file includes a lesson plan idea as well as a short powerpoint to use if desired. Score is not included due to copyright. The melody for this song can be found in Music For Children Vol.1 Pg 88 #1 Part A
