Tideo, the classic folk song, is a great choice if you are looking for mi, re, do melody and sixteenth note rhythm practice packaged in a step-by-step presentation that includes a fun and easy Orff arrangement.
Melody & Rhythm Practice
Students will love the singing games/dances while experiencing mi, re, do in the melody (a video Poison Pattern game) and sixteenth notes in the rhythm.
Easy Orff Arrangement
In C pentatonic, Tideo’s easy Orff arrangement using three ostinati can be expanded to include an optional instrumental B section and an improvised C section.
The instrumental parts are taught using speech and body percussion in easy-to-follow slides. Use this multi-lesson low/no prep format in either Google Slides or PowerPoint.
- Singing Game/Dance-the presentation teaches a double circle routine.
- Rhythm-*quarters, paired eighths, and 4 sixteenths in the song.
- Rhythm-*Eighth note with 2 sixteenths in the B section
- Melody–mi, re, do is highlighted in the presentation
- Melody-the song also includes high do
- Orff Arrangement-a 3 ostinati arrangement with additional parts for optional B and C sections
- Other Instruments: Recorder/Boomwhacker-notation and melodic color-coding using C, D, E, G, A, C’
- Ukulele-LOVE these pentatonic tunes so one chord, C, the entire time.
*Rhythms aren’t labeled so you can use your classroom rhythm counting system.
My Favorite Part
I LOVE that you can extend the form and add lots of different instruments to the point this fun song could easily become a concert piece.
The resource includes:
A presentation in both PPT and Google Slides versions
A video preview of the song arrangement in each presentation
A PDF copy of the song arrangement sheet music
