Just search "weekofthanks" for the goodies, which includes a free font you can use for personal or commercial purposes, my "Thanksgiving Patterns" for re newly released for 30% off, my "Build a Turkey" for low sol for only $1, and now my first grade favorite folk song!
I learned about Mrs. Macaroni from a student of mine when I taught at Colorado State:
Here is the notation so that it is easier to read!
This is one of those songs that I thought kids would enjoy, but no, they LOVE IT!!! I don't know if it's because it's a fun tune, or because they get to sing about their wedding, or because they sing their name, but they absolutely adore this song. It's also a great way to teach how to swing partners (they often want to face the same way, which of course, doesn't work.)
It's also great for ta and ti-ti...I love that the patterns in the song are not your typical patterns. There aren't too many songs that have 4 ti-ti's in a row or even better, ta ta ti-ti ti-ti. It's great for kids to hear unusual patterns so they can transfer their knowledge from familiar and common patterns to unfamiliar and uncommon.
