Hop Old Squirrel
We have been busy in 4K learning about our singing voice, the steady beat, and rhythm (the pattern of the words.) We also have started using some instruments when we sing. Fall is the perfect time to bring out "Hop Old Squirrel" to help us practice these concepts. This song is an American folk song. We practiced singing in different groups--the class on one part, Mrs. Krejci on the other part. Then, we moved our bodies to the different musical sections. Finally, we put the movements on instruments and all took turns playing the instrument while the class sang. Our final product is "Hop Old Squirrel" with movements, tubano drums, egg shakers, and voices. You will find all these displayed in the video below. And, if you look closely, you just might spot our puppet friend, Mr. Squirrel, that helped us learn the song!
