I saw and read various versions on how to create a lesson out of this song and have compiled a bunch of teaching points into one large lesson. When I realized how much could be taught in this lesson I had to share! This can be a lesson on steady beat, form, rhythm, ostinato, solfege, and I'm sure there's more hidden in there I haven't realized yet

Each slide walks students through a gradual process of adding Orff instruments into the song. I've added lesson notes at the bottom of each slide in the "notes" section. I do not entirely rely on the slides, and eventually end up demonstrating the steps if my students are having a tough time following the directions on the slides, but it's good to do both.

I learned two different Orff accompaniments to this song and like them both. The one I walk through with my students is simple and more suitable for younger grades or for introducing the instruments. I've included a second arrangement at the end that is more advanced and better for older students and also adds some percussion lines.

Enjoy! Your feedback is appreciated so I can make any improvements that will help your teaching :)
