Product Description
Perfect for the Fall Season!

This French Folk Song is a great way for your students to add some instrumental accompaniment this Thanksgiving. Slides feature lyrics, sheet music, rhythm accompaniment slides to include 4 different classroom rhythm instruments with ostinatos to accompany the piece, and melodic ostinato slides to include 2 different Orff instruments. Students can read and play each accompaniment separately, as a rhythm ensemble, melodic ensemble, or all together. The final slide is an "ensemble" slide so all 6 accompaniment parts may be played together while students sing the song. SafeShareTV video link is also included so students can hear the tune of the piece.

The piece is in 6/8 meter.
Rhythms used: quarter note, eighth note, dotted quarter, dotted half note

Orff & Percussion Instruments used:
Hand drum
Soprano Metalophon
Alto Xylophone
