Dingle Dangle Scarecrow

This is a fun and useful song for:

  • Getting up and moving!
  • Working with dynamics - loud and soft.
  • Teaching the melodic element 'low ti'. (Because this song is probably a bit young for students by the time they learn 'low ti', you can use it by substituting solfa and/or rhythm names for the lyrics.)
