Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This takes the retrieval practice Seesaw Activity I created and places it inside the entire lesson. This lesson can be used in a classroom setting or as a music center and it can be done over a few lessons as well. It follows the Kodály and Orff Schulwerk approaches. It leads the student through learning the melody of Teddy Bear. It also gives them virtual boomwhackers (inside of the Seesaw Activity) and solfege retrieval practice to learn and master the melody. Then they learn the bass line. At the very end, they can use acoustic instruments or virtual instruments found outside of Seesaw to perform the melody and/or the bass line with the play-along video.
