PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This fun Orff and Kodaly SMARTboard activity explores Syncopation. Shake the Papaya Down is a fun way for students to explore how syncopation works with the steady beat. It uses movement, singing, notation, AB form and partner work. Your students will love this activity. This can tie into Columbus Day or Any Day!

Students begin with visualizing how to create a tied note using two eighth notes.The students explore note values by first patting the steady beat and then speaking the written rhythm. There are several activities that reinforce feeling the steady beat while speaking syncopated rhythms.

Students then echo sing the melody by phrase and then singing the whole A section of the song. The B section transfers rhythms to body percussion and has a partner activity. Students then perform the form of the song where they sing the song while moving to the steady beat and find a partner to perform the B section. It repeats until the students can internalize the difference between locomotor and non-locomotor movement in the form. There is also a formative assessment of the words that students enjoy manipulating on the SMARTboard. Have fun with all these activities.

This was the very first SMARTboard activity I had ever created. I hope you enjoy this activity from Mark Britt Music Resources. My students always remember this is the song that helped them learn syncopation. The sheet music is not included in this activity.
