MELODY - SOLFEGE FROGS (s, - l, - d)

Leap Back Home to Me
Written by Lauren Thompson
Illustrated by Matthew Cordell
ISBN 978-1-4351-5969-3

This story was used in the last posting to sing along -- and a soprano recorder activity was added for GR 3 to play B-A-G (mi-re-do.)

This week, since my GR 3 students have moved beyond mi-re-do at this point in the year, and since I like having more than one activity for the children's books I purchase, I am adding another activity for this book but am addressing la, and sol,.

Sing the book to the familiar folk song Who's Got a Fishpole?    If you are unfamiliar with this tune, visit the link below to hear the song on YOUTUBE.

After singing 4 phrases (ending with "leap back home to me," invite students to arrange 8 of the solfege frogs and sing the melodic  pattern that is created.  As the next 4 phrases (or verse) is sung, the students arrange the solfege frogs into a new melodic pattern.  I usually start with all do frogs, then cumulatively add the la, frogs to create 2-note patterns.  Then add the sol, frogs to create 3-note patterns.  Laminate the frogs, cut out and use as a floor game or laminate and cut out and put magnets on the back for magnetic board use.

Click below to purchase the completed solfege frog pattern manipulative packs for only $5 plus shipping.  In the kit, you will receive 16 frog patterns - 8 do frogs, 4 la, frogs, and 4 sol, frogs.  The link includes a visual of the frog pattern with the solfege hand signs.
