Song Games to Sing & Play

Instructions Below

Leader (“It”) walks around the circle while singing. On the last word, “It” taps a student. That person becomes the next “It.”


I don’t allow the next “it” to run after the person who taps him/her – while we’re playing indoors. Instead, the student walks quickly around the circle. Outside on the grass, they can play like “Duck Duck Goose” and run.

I use this to assess pitch matching, so I make sure each student gets a turn.

The goal of our content is to support you sharing your musicianship with the students. We highly recommend that you practice the songs and games we prepped for you before class. When you click on the icon of a song within the app, it will seamlessly transport you to the notation of that particular song on Beth’s Notes. Happy exploring and making beautiful music with “Grade 1 Let’s Go!” and Beth’s Notes!
