☆ “Waltz of the Flowers” (3/4 time signature vs 4/4 time signature, strings/no strings, woodwinds/no woodwinds)
Play A-longs are both in color (to use on projected Smart board) and in black & white (for handout) Song accompaniments included: “March” (for jingle bells and woodblocks), “Russian Dance” or “Trépak” (triangle, tambourine, woodblocks) – note recordings of the songs ARE NOT included.
Two quizzes regarding form are in this resource as well. The quizzes (for the songs “March” and “Dance of the Reed Pipes”) show form patterns in character images. You play a recording of the song (not included) and students circle the form they hear. There are two quizzes on each page so you don't need to make copying easier (and to use less paper).
Make the glyphs part of a listening station for either a holiday or Nutcracker-themed workstation unit.
