Just search "weekofthanks" for the goodies, which includes a winter vocal exploration freebie, my first grade music lessons subscription for second semester for 30% off, my "Which animal" game for tika-tika for $1, and now my second grade favorite folk song!
I learned "Sammy Sackett" from Bruce Swank when I did my Level II at Capital University. If you ever get a chance to see Bruce present, he is AMAZING!
Here is the notation so that it is easier to read!
Here are the game directions:
Two captains are chosen, and students spread out in the room. As the students sing, the captains walk around, and on the word “coat,” they grab the shirt of a child and pull them along. Next time the students sing the song, the second child grabs the shirt of a third child, etc. If one of the teams forgets to grab a child, lets go, or doesn’t grab on the word “coat,” then the other team wins.
There are a few reasons I love this singing game. First, it' a pretty song with a somewhat unusual melody. Second, it's great for half note. And lastly, the game is pretty unique and challenging. The kids love it, and it's one of my half note "go to" songs that I don't think I'll ever get tired of!
Also, I am participating in the TpTMusicSellers $2 Tuesday Flash Music Sale. TpT's search engine has been a bit glitchy (which I found out with my "weekofthanks" search term) so if you can't get the sale items from all the participating sellers to come up with a search for "TpTMusicSellers," visit Lindsay Jervis' blog to see all of the items. I am selling my newly posted sol-mi-la bingo for only $2.
I'm excited to go shopping too!
Remember to enter my giveaway by visiting this blog post, and come back tomorrow for my favorite third grade folk song!
