Dog And Cat

Can do a word improvisation game, with students 'buying' other things and needing the first and second line to rhyme.

Also terrific for:

  • Teaching the melodic elements 'low la' and 'low so'.
  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'ti-tika' (beginning of song).
  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'syncop' (last line of song).
