After singing "Skip to My Lou," students work in pairs to create verses for the song. This arrangement has a simple 2-note accompaniment to play on glockenspiel or xylophone. The sheet music contains the chorus and one verse--leaving many possibilities for student-created verses.
This lesson is excerpted from a new book in the CORE Music for Kids series published by Arts Educated. This series works for both the music specialist and for parent volunteers or the classroom teacher in schools that do not have a music specialist.
Note: The four pages of this lesson include the printable preview file of the song lyrics to display for reading fluency.
