Thanks so much for posting all these lesson ideas! I was just googling song ideas to help teach sixteenth notes to my 3rd graders (I forgot my books at school) and your blog came up. I’m so glad it did! Thank you so much!! Can’t wait to teach this tomorrow! 🙂
I absolutely LOVE your blog!! Thank you so much for sharing so freely you talents!
So glad you like it, Kathy! You are so welcome! 🙂
thanks for your web site! Do you have any history on Tideo? where did it originate? and other information
Here is some more info about Tideo: http://bluegrassmessengers.com/tideo–indiana-play-party-1916.aspx
I’m teaching my 9 yr. old grand daughter guitar — this is a good song for the note learning , timing , and chords changes. I put it in the key of C — and only one other chord — G — . then wrote the tablature under the notes which helps her learn the scale. I’ve been playing since high school and will turn 80 soon.
I know this,song…but you didnt get the song right.its for step number 5, its not” Tideo,Tideo”
but its “Jinglin Jinglin Jinglin joe” Either way,i still LOVE this song!
I am sure there are several versions, which is typical of folk songs! 🙂
I love the song but am wondering if you have a suggestion on how to implement the game safely during the pandemic?
With these movements, students don’t need to touch each other. They could stand in a scattered formation around the room and walk forward and back and stomp and pat without interacting with each other. Good luck! 🙂
