This song is great for feeling the pulse of the music. Families can help by clapping or helping their children feel the beat in other ways. Pat your knees, tap on toes, light touch on arm or shoulders using hand-over-hand where appropriate. If you have an instrument available, use it to play to the beat. Look on my blog for how to make your own homemade shaker.
Hello Recorder players! Great news! I have put a new assignment for you on our Google Classroom. Now you can make a video to send to me of you playing your Recorder Karate songs, and it should be super easy to do! Make sure to practice before recording.
