Home on the Range

Our 1st and 2nd graders are working on learning "Home on the Range" for Grandparents' Day.  I am amazed by how much they love this song!  They enjoy learning a song that their parents and grandparents know.  We also have been talking about meter--how the beat is grouped.  We usually hear music in meters of 2, 3, or 4. This song is in a meter of 3.  So, as we learned the song, we also learned to keep the beat to the meter of 3.  We felt the STRONG-weak-weak beat while using body percussion.  Here's a 1st grade class on their first day on this song!
