We are finally getting some colder weather where I live...so, feeling inspired, I wrote this original song.
I use the song and movements with my kindergarteners. There are many "leaf" songs out there to use with this.
For my first graders, I use three mini-lessons. I really like these because they connect so many concepts together (pitch, melody, melodic direction, high/low and ta/titi). The students use instruments, improvise sung melodies, and even create their own cute composition (see below).
Students love to take compositions home to sing with family members. What a cool, festive creation to hang on the fridge!
