Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

While rummaging around, looking for Christmas songs using the half note (for 2nd grade) I found, duh, "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas".

As usual, I created a Power Point.

First, the students read the lyrics.

Then, we add the rhythms, showing the quarter notes tied together.

Then, I present the half note.

Lastly, the students will add jingle bells to the half note.  We also practice "skating" or "gliding" around while doing this.
You can download this short Power Point for free here: Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
