Looking for a fun activity for Fall? Scarecrow is an original song (with a singing/pitched instrument A section and a speaking, unpitched instrument B section) that will get all ages of elementary music students singing, moving, playing, improvising, and practicing their music reading.
The PDF includes slides for teaching, game instructions, instrumentation, printables and a worksheet, as well as thorough teaching instructions for 3 mini-lessons.
While the focus of the song is on the quarter note and eighth note pair, many other concepts (including improvisation and form) are also covered.
Note: Be sure to read the teaching instructions in order to ensure a successful learning experience for your students.
