This super fun game song is great for introducing the pitch 'ti" since there is only one in the entire song! It is also great for working with the rhythm 'tim-ka'. Your opening page has a fly that will fly across the page and get swatted by a giant red fly-swatter.
In this interactive Smartboard Notebook file, you get 11 pages of fun that include:
* The game directions
* FOUR RHYTHM PAGES: including a prep page that, when the tim-ka prep is tapped, lights up and buzzes and, a practice page that when tapped lights up and changes to a tim-ka rhythm that buzzes.
* THREE MELODY PAGES: a prep page, that when the 'ti' is tapped, lights up and buzzes; a page of black notes to read or use to check for understanding of pitch (you choose which notes to tap, revealing color coding), and a page that you can re-pitch to suit your students’ voices.
* ACCOMPANIMENT PARTS: that have options. One page is color coded, but can be re-pitched to match your student’s voices or your available instruments. The other page is filled with black notation. BOTH ARE MOVEABLE, so you can re-pitch as you desire. This accompaniment clearly aligns with the A section and the B section to make it easier for students to hear the change.
