Alligator March

This chasing game is great for:

  • Including the students who may not be comfortable singing. (This is a rhyme, so students will use speaking voices not singing voices.)
  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'tika-tika' (semiquavers / sixteenth notes).
  • Practising beat - opportunity to focus more on the beat and rhythm because not concentrating on the melody.
  • Having fun!
