The focus for our primary music classes will be singing and beat awareness. To that end, we will be doing singing activities (group and individually) as well as movement activities around "stepping the beat".
A poem that I have been doing with all the classes is "Mississauga Rattlesnake".
Mississauga Rattlesnake eat brown bread,
Mississauga Rattlesnake fall down dead,
If you catch a caterpillar feed him apple juice,
but if you catch a rattlesnake turn him loose.
