Fun and informative rhythm rondo for elementary music classrooms.
This song uses rhythms from the Orff-Schulwerk supplemental Rhythmische Ubung. It uses patting rhythms #2, 11, 12, 13, and 14. There is no score of rhythm parts included. Lyrics and process are by Allison Croskey.
3 pages of lesson plans help your students to discover different sea creatures. For each section of the Rondo you can teach the students the lyrics and patting technique. You may also choose to decode the rhythms of the piece as a class.
This is a great piece for a performance. Have different classes perform the different sea creatures for a fun inclusive piece!
