The Kangaroo Hop
by Teresa Jennings
This is a bonus tune for this issue of Music K-8! Originally published in the musical "Kookaburra's Christmas Down Under," this song is perfect for your across the curriculum studies of Australia. This summer, the Olympics will be held in Sydney, Australia. If your school is planning to focus on this event or on the location in any way, you will find the use of this song very helpful.
This boogie woogie should be pretty self-explanatory, even for your youngest singers. We have included movement indications right on the music for your convenience. Hint: For the best effect, don't let hoppers go too high when there are three hops in a row.
