    MUSIC – GR. 5/6

    Sleigh Ride with Body Percussion Rhythm challenge!!
    Get ready to move to the music!
    Sleigh Ride uses a RONDO form ABACA. This means sections will repeat. You may have to do it few times before you are able to get all the rhythms. Have fun!

    O Come, O Come Emmanuel: Watch and listen to this beautiful version of O Come O Come Emmanuel

    This Little Light of Mine: Watch this video. Wow!  They can really sing!

    The Russian Dance from the Nutcracker Suite: Use your homemade percussion instruments to play along with this video

    Hanukkah Hanukkah: Read and follow the melody, clap the rhythm with me

    Rhythm Review: Print out the Christmas Tree rhythm handout (found under RESOURCES in the music tab) page before you watch the video. Be sure to have pencil crayons or markers. As I say a rhythm, repeat it and then find it on your page. Colour the ornament that has that rhythm pattern.
