Another Valentine’s Day Lesson You’ll Love!

Valentine’s Day is almost here!

If you missed last week’s post, we unpacked some great lesson ideas for this special day!

Today we’re digging into another great Valentine’s Day lesson, using the ClassPlay song “A-Tisket, A-Tasket.” This folk song helps students learn steps and skips, practice rhythm, and has a sweet Valentine’s Day connection.

Let’s dive in to this fun holiday activity:

How to access “A-Tisket, A-Tasket:”

For users with access to: Curriculum & ClassPlay

  1. Visit QuaverMusic.com and log into your Teacher Account
  2. Click the TEACHER Tab
  3. Click the ClassPlay icon, located on the Teacher Dashboard
  4. Type “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” into the search bar
  5. Access all activities from the Song Hub

 

 1) “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” Lyrics

Have students listen and sing along with “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” using our LYRICS activity. This song is ideal for grades K–3. Show students how the person in the song did something special for someone they loved. Discuss with students how they can do something special for their loved ones.

 

2) Solfège and Rhythm

This activity breaks down the song into rhythm and pitch. This is a great opportunity to observe students. Choose the desired pitch or rhythm method using the PITCH/RHYTHM button. Penny Pianissimo is there to help teach pitch using solfège hand signs.

3) Connections

Easily connect this song to Valentine’s Day with our Connections activity! Students can learn more about the holiday and discuss how they celebrate it. Print off the Letter or Drawing worksheets found in the PRINTABLES section of the Hub. Encourage literacy and creativity by asking students to write or draw a letter of their own—just like in the song!

Teacher Tip: Students can write or draw to anyone they love. This could be a friend, parent, sibling, or even a teacher! Send the letters home before Valentine’s Day so they can be delivered.

We hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and enjoy giving these resources a try in your classroom!
