Hop Up And Jump Up

Music can help to teach love - to teach respect. To respect difference and to appreciate one another.

Here is a lovely song that you can easily add movement to. It's yours for free - we hope it can bring a moment of peace and fun to your classroom.

This song can also be used to teach:

  • The melodic element 'high do'.
  • The rhythmic elements 'ta' and 'ti-ti' (crotchet/quarter note and quavers/eighth notes).
  • Simple quadruple (4/4) metre.
  • Singing and octave - from 'do' to 'high do'.
