Alligator Chant

What a great chant for teaching sixteenth notes!

Explore sixteenth notes:

  • Pat the beat as they learn the chant.
  • Identify “alligator” as having 4 syllables.
  • All 4 syllables fit into one beat.
  • Now pat the rhythm. Alternating hands will make it easier.

  1. Hi again, Beth,
    I am looking for the original source for these.. do you know where it comes from and is it published somewhere? Did you learn these from someone specific and were they original to that person? THANK YOU so very much for your response!
