Product Description
Brought to you by Kodaly Music With Mrs Perry, This perky game song can is sung in both English and Scots Gaelic. Here is what you get:

*GRAPHICS: Fun and interactive

*LANGUAGE: This song is presented in both English and Gaelic (phonetic). Gaelic is a very difficult language to read, as it does not sound as it looks and is unrelated to Latin Based Languages. Presented phonetically, it is easy for children to master song material in original language.

*SINGING: Tap on the lead pages and hear the song sung in whichever language you choose as you look at it.

*RHYTHM: The most complex rhythm is a dotted quarter and eighth (tam ti). Students can analyze for repeated rhythmic patterns. When they are found, they light up and make a positive sound.

*MELODY: There are only two pitches of "ti" in the entire song, making it perfect for Preparing and Presenting. If you don't like the key it is pitched in, you can drag the whole lot of notes to any key you'd like.

*INSTRUMENTS: There is a written accompaniment for xylophone. It may be dragged to a new key, as well.

*GAME: The game gives children an opportunity to be sassy. They pretend to be the teacher, make silly poses and imitate one another. In addition, "it", gets to pick the next "it" by flipping his kilt at another...uproariously fun!!!
