Review: Doggie, Doggie & Snail, Snail

In Unit 1 we learned the game songs Doggie, Doggie and Snail, Snail. Now we are ready to sing the song with solfa syllables and hand signs. These songs use three syllables: sol, la, and mi.


Here’s the original version of Snail, Snail with lyrics:

Snail, Snail musical notationHere’s a version with the solfa syllables written in (this is for parent use only—students should follow a parent/teacher and not read the syllables themselves). See if you can use what you learned in earlier lessons to sing the songs with the solfa syllables and make the hand signs without the aid of a video.

Now see if you can apply the same steps to the song Doggie, Doggie.

Can you add the solfa syllables without having them written out for you? If you can (and you/your children are matching pitch fairly well), you are ready to move on to the next unit! (For help deciding if you are matching pitch, watch this video.)
