I was on the lookout for songs that are just d-r-m for my older beginners. Frog in the Meadow is a fun song for them. I have created the slides for this song and have included slides where "re" is the unknown/new concept so that I can use in the future with my kids who will follow the traditional Kodaly sequence or for others who would like them.
Slides and flashcards are available on my Teachers Pay Teachers store

Take the solfege out of the notes and we are reading like real musicians!
This version of Frog in the Meadow is taken from "Sail Away". I have seen other versions of it that use ti-tiri.
There is a leap frog game that goes with this song.
