Teaching ideas

We could use the beginning of the song as a memory-tip to teach and remember the interval of the perfect 4th. This interval appears three times at the first three phrases.

After they have learned the song well,  ask the kids to sing it from a different pitch that you give them every time. At the end, they could have sung it several times…

Find other famous melodies that start also with 4th (like Mozart’s allegro from “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik“, “O Christmas Tree” or “Adeste Fideles“.
