Solfege chords (movable do) >>> These are like knowing your TIMES tables in math!
# Silly solfege song, COMPLETE with silly JAZZ hands at the end. Can kids identify the degrees of the scale. GET the JOKE? See if they are able to anticipate the upcoming word choice and have the HAND sign ready!

Sight reading worksheets-this will be super helpful
The ending of a Two part song that our 3rd grade performed last march. the kiddos can see their part and how it relates to the other part. w/ this they know if their voices are higher or lower depending on what part they have. we can be singing two parts in a couple of days. very handy when you only get to see your students 2x a week, and only have about 16 practices for a performance. all the distances are spaced according to the major scale. half steps between ti-do and mi-fa
Picking and choosing music.
A well-developed sense of relative pitch allows you to hear and recognize relationships between notes (intervals), even if you don't know the note names.
VERY detailed story. I don't like some things (boys throwing dirt clauds at girls) about it but it gives you a creative basis. Some of the content is too old for elementary.
Training for a Lifetime of singing!
