Peanut Butter Jelly

      (

Listen to it – there is a dancing banana.

      )
      B. Large poster, chalkboard or lyric sheets with rhythms written in. (

See below.

    )

III. Procedure:

      A. Listen to the song on the computer, use TV hookup or Smartboard for better viewing. If you do not have one of these, it does not matter; they will still like it.
      B. Divide students into three groups: the “Peanut Butter”, “Jelly” and “Baseball Bat” groups.
      C. Teach them the rhythms that occur when their words are said in the song. (

You can choose to teach them the rhythms to each and every word, but I think that is overkill and would not be fun.

      )
      D. During the “there he go” and “now break it down and freeze,” I have them dance in their own space, but we stay in rhythm so that they are ready to play their instrument at the next phrase.
      E. When you get good at it, you can pull it out any time and just say “It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time!” and they will all know what instruments to get, etc. and start playing.
    F. You could extend this lesson in many ways according to your grade level and class ability.

IV. Evaluation:

    A. Student performance
