Two-oo

Two-oo

  • Use your right hand to make the hand sign for blue.
  • Rotate your hand a quarter-turn and open your fingers to make a circle with only the thumb and middle finger touching.
  • “Remember to keep your stems straight.” Smile and make a two-oo with a wimpy stem.

It’s helpful for many age groups to hold the “two-oo” sign up to our eyes, talk about how this is the note with the hole in it that you can see through.

 

 

When saying the rhythms on the cards, move the two-oo hand sign smoothly along the card for two beats. Be careful not to pulse the “oo” too much with your voice. Let your hand do it.
