Students will love singing this fun little Dutch Christmas tune while focusing on step-wise motion. This SMART NOTEBOOK edition of this lesson features a cute beat tapping chart, a rhythm notation activity, a reading the song from melodic/rhythmic notation picture icons without a staff, and finally reading the song on the staff. Also included in this lesson is a Solfege sequencing activity in which the students will have to put each Solfege melodic phrase to the song in the correct order of how it occurs in the song. Lesson extension ideas could include a quick study on Dutch Christmas traditions, including the tradition of Santa leaving treats in the children's shoes (as stated in the song).
