I finally finished working on my SMART Board pages for Five Little Pumpkins!
The first page is just a simple page for singing the song. Tap on each "thought" bubble and a picture appears as a hint for what that pumpkin says. At the end of the song, tap a pumpkin and they "roll" out of sight!
The next page is a simple solfege ladder that corresponds with the Boomwhacker colours. Students can do "sight-playing" exercises as the teacher points to the pumpkins. Modify into the Five Little Pumpkins song. It's a good demonstration of how the song goes up and down the scale.
The next four pages are the Five Little Pumpkins song notated in boxes: 4 beats per measure, 4 measures per page. Younger students will have an easier time playing this version, as opposed to the notes on the music staff.
Next is the song notated (still with colour pumpkins) on the staff for older students. The colours help them out, but they will become more aware of how melodies move up and down on the music staff.
The last page is an empty music staff where students can compose their own Boomwhacker pieces with the coloured pumpkins.
