The Monsters are HUNGRY and bite by bite eat away the solfége and rhythm of the song "Pumpkin, Pumpkin". This is an interactive PowerPoint that your students will LOVE, all the while practicing their musical memory skills, reviewing known solfége and known rhythms.
First, they will review the song "Pumpkin, Pumpkin" by
* singing on text
* singing on rhythm syllables
* singing on solfége
* singing on "teacher's choice"
This is great for
* reviewing rhythms: ta, ti-ti, tika-tika
* reviewing solfége: do-re-mi-so-la
Then, slide by slide a monster comes along and eats a beat of the song, thus removing that specifc beat from the song. This continues until all the beats of the song are gone and the students are singing the song from memory. Each time, the students are challenged to sing the song in its entirety, including the missing beats. The students LOVE this activity, all the while they are building their musical memory and inner-hearing skills.
Ths song notation and singing game directions are also included!
