Solo Singing in 2nd Grade

I tricked the kids this week.  Please don't give away my secret!  We learned a new song I call "Viking, Viking."  It's a greeting song, in which someone asks a person a question.  The person answers back in song--all on his or her own!  I know solo singing can be scary for some of us, so my trick was to use my supply of animal puppets.  Each student picked an animal and used his or her own singing voice to "be" the animal's voice.  They got to pretend and I got to assess singing abilities.  We also were able to add in some mallet parts.  It was such a sweet lesson to teach and observe.  It was fun to see the kids use their imaginations and to sing without fear.

Here are some photos  and a video from one class this week.
