Although this song uses the pitches Do-Mi-So-La, I think it is a great song to use with 3rd graders at the beginning of the year (apples are so fall/school themed anyway) as we review all the pitches they learned in 2nd. I begin using songs with Do-Re-Mi, then add So and La in a variety of ways until the Do Pentatonic scale has been reconstructed (this "review" usually takes the first 1.5 months of school). I've added lots of little "extras" to this download, check it out:
|Steady Beat Slide|
|Rhythm Icon Slide|
|Add the Melody|
|Solfa on Staff|
|Melody on Staff|
I also added cards (as usual) for reconstructing the song (as an assessment). Here's a picture of the solfa cards (lyrics - rhythm - solfa cards included):
If you've already downloaded my Do Mi So La Lesson Bundle, you'll find it there (check out my post for more info: Do Mi So La Lessons). That download includes six other song slides for teaching Do Mi So La and accompanying worksheets, instructions, printables, games, movement suggestions, and instrumentation).
