Do re mi fa so la ti do

I start the 2nd grade Melody unit by watching the Sound of Music clip of Do Re Mi and then learning to sing the song. I use the following slides for the PowerPoint. Once we learn the song well (we sing it to open each Melody lesson), we add Curwen hand signs.

Do Re Mi - free piano music here
Do Re Mi - buy sheet music here

Then there's the fun song: Ebeneezer Sneezer or One Cold and Frosty Morning (below). We sing it, play it on xylophones and act it out by pointing from the floor, then our knees, then thighs, etc - as we sing up the scale.
