Just Like That = Mi Re Do

First the children drew their own pictures of pumpkins and we sang “just like that” while pointing to the pumpkins. 

Then the children colored their own pumpkins and cut them out. Using the pumpkins they created, they placed them on a two line staff and were able to represent the descending melodic pattern Mi-Re-Do (which are the corresponding solfege syllables for “just like that.”).
