Are you ready to add barred instruments to classic songs and games? This All Around the Buttercup resource includes an easy Orff arrangement that is taught with body percussion, speech, and great visuals. It includes the classic game and a new one or two with some fun twists. Buttercup is a wonderful song to teach quarter notes and rests and eighth note pairs, as well as so, mi, re, do patterns.
There’s something for kids grades K-3. K and 1st can play a bordun and 2nd and 3rd can add on the melody and a super FUN ostinato.
All ages can play the classic game as well as some NEW versions to kick it up a notch!
With a so-mi-re-do, many teachers use this song to present “re” to their students.
It’s a beautiful example to our youngest students to hear one sound, two sounds, or NO sounds on a beat!
This low prep resource hands you a couple or MANY lessons, READY to teach!
PS: I added a 2nd and 3rd verse in case you want to lengthen it for a performance!
