Ball Passing Game

This song works really well to transition between activities, for example putting away instruments. See the download for more ideas!

In addition, this song is great for:

  • Practising the beat.
  • Preparing and teaching the melodic element 'fa'.
  • Preparing the rhythmic element 'tum ti'.
  • Singing the tonic triad (d-m-s) ascending and descending.
