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. 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.
