Rhythm Sounds

 

Instructions:

In this activity you will build a long rhythm that will be a challenge for the children to read and play with their instruments. Start by introducing each sound and then adding it to the rhythm. After the children become proficient at playing all the sounds you can ask individual children if they would like to play it all by themselves.

It’s time for rhythm sounds. We’re going to start with one sound and then add more until we have a long rhythm that will stretch all the way across our group space.

The Bird Frog & Crocodile Story

with Spanish animal names!

 

Instructions:

Demonstrate how the various instruments make the sounds of the animals and splashing water in the story.

Intro:

In this story, the drums make the sound of the elephants running through the jungle; the scrapers make the sound of the frog; the shakers, bells and triangles make the sound of the splashing water; and the slide whistle makes the sound of the bird.

Lyrics:                     chords: E

Once upon a time there were two friends, a bird, Pájaro,  and a frog, Rana. One day they were sitting by the river talking about what kind of bugs they ate for breakfast. They didn’t know it, but in the water was a big, hungry crocodile, Cocodrilo. He was looking for something to eat when he saw Pájaro and Rana. Cocodrilo said, “I’m gonna have them for my lunch.” So he swam closer and closer and closer, till he was right next to them. They still didn’t see him. They still didn’t see him. Pájaro didn’t see him and Rana didn’t see him. Suddenly Cocodrilo jumped out of the water! He opened up his big jaws and he was just about to eat up Pájaro and Rana, but then the elefantes went running through the jungle! It was so loud it scared Cocodrilo. He jumped back in the water and swam away as fast as he could go. And then Pájaro and Rana were safe and sound and that’s the end of the story.
