This is a fun one, it’s a Dutch Spinning Song. There are some fun movements that go with it too: Mary Alice Amidon has them written out in her new book “I’m Growing Up”
Love your blog!
Thanks for the idea, Amy!
What program do you use to write out the parts? I’m having a class do a composition project, and I am looking for a way to write it all out. I’ve used Noteflight in the past, but I’d love to know what you use. Thanks!
Shelley, I use Sibelius. My school bought Sibelius for a the four computers in my classroom. I love Sibelius! I’m going to blog about it one of these days.
Silebius is awesome, isn’t it?!! Have you done flashcards with it yet? I haven’t had time to work on that yet (I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old). If so, please let me know how long it takes. 🙂
YES, I love Sibelius! No, I haven’t done flashcards with it yet! Now I’m intrigued! I have to try!
I love your arrangement! The “will you be my friend” part really helped keep students in time. I also extended this lesson to a second week using a rhythm stick game I found on Youtube. Here’s a link to my blog post where I talk about the lesson and link to your blog. 🙂 Thank you for all you do.
That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing!
