'Pass The Present On Singing Game'
Resources Supporting the Kodály Method Brought to you by MySongFile.com
Singing games are a fantastic way to bring fun to a lesson while still achieving music education goals!
Included is the sheet music with instructions, direction cards and a template for writing some of your own directions if desired.
• This singing game is a great way to relax and have fun at the end of a year.
• In this game, the students sing the song while passing a 'present' round on the beat. The student who is holding the present on the last word of the song can choose to keep the present or pass it to the person beside them.
• The ‘present’ is a box with a direction inside. Example instructions are included, or you can make up your own.
• Instructions can be anything from clapping the rhythm of a known song, to doing sit-ups to choosing a prize. (You could even use this song to assess whether students can achieve certain goals, e.g. singing a song with an ostinato!)
