In this Preschool Prodigies music lesson, we play a slightly more difficult Do-Re-Mi Melody in “Sally the Camel.”
In Sally The Camel we …
-Use the hand signs to sing and sign the song in Solfege
-Learn a little bit more about the sound of the notes (strong, rising, restful)
-Play our instruments with the colors and letter names
-Play faster series of notes
-Sing the words to “Sally the Camel” while playing our bells
Sally The Camel Follow Up Activities
Inside the Chapter 4 workbook, you’ll find some simple sheet music for Sally The Camel, some note labeling practice, and some incorrect note games!
Sally the Camel is arguably the most difficult melody we’ve played so far, and it’s worth getting some extra practice with it. The difficulty comes from the quick series of notes during “Sally the camel has” sections. We aren’t going to talk about note length until Chapter 9, and this melody is simple enough where children can learn it without needing to read proper rhythms. Nevertheless, it’s worth spending some extra time really making sure your learn owns this melody before moving on!
The end of Chapter 4 is coming up, which means that you’re almost halfway through Preschool Prodigies. With that in mind, you might want to consider having a recital for your learners using our performance tracks!
In the next lesson, we’ll review the C and G chords with a simpler chord arrangement inside of London Bridge. This lesson is similar to “The Wheels on the Bus I” in that it provides a simple chord accompaniment to a song your learn can sing!
