Anyway, as I am still focused on Thanksgiving and using the Orff training I received this past summer, I added the following words to the A section of "Badinerie."
Finally, we added their body percussion to a recording of "Badinerie," and performed with the recording! We also identified the B section as stuff they don't know yet.....I plan on going back and having them help me create lyrics to that section.
For any Kodaly people, this is at the stage where we are practicing these rhythms. I think adding the Orff stuff helps cement things, especially during the practice stages. I love that this piece isolates the tika-ti in one measure, and the ti-tika in another, keeping them separate but distinct.
I love incorporating both Orff and Kodaly ideas in my classroom. They really work so well together - you just have to get creative :)
