Froggie In The Meadow

This easy circle, hiding game is great for:

  • Working with the melodic elements 'do, re, mi'.
  • Teaching the melodic element 're'.
  • Working in mixed metre. (You might like to exaggerate the first beat of each bar in 6/8 metre to reinforce the change of time signature.)
