Classes played rhythms sticks to better understand the form of the song "Live Alive" performed by a popular Christian Folk band called Rend Collective.
The leprechauns caused some mischief in the music room and took away the bar lines in a piece of music! Students looked at the time signature to put the bar lines back where they belong.
We played a game similar to "Hot and Cold." One students hid a pot of gold and another student, the leprechaun, had the task of finding it. The class played tambourines quietly when the leprechaun was far away and played louder as the leprechaun got closer to help them find the gold!
