Grades 1-3 - Run away to Treble Clef Island, where Super Frog and Mr. E--the well-known and beloved Freddie the Frog and Eli the Elephant--save the ants, beetle bugs, and damselflies by resetting the Mighty Meter Gnome, who sets the pace of their working feet. Amid the engaging story, energetic melodies, and colorful costumes and sets, students learn about friendship, team work, and music concepts that include tempo terms and beat. Concise directions for making the sets and costumes are provided, along with a reproducible script, lyric sheets, and student vocal parts. The optional Orff accompaniments allow you to include even more students in the performance, and the included P/A CD features a high-energy instrumental ensemble that makes this musical accessible in any setting. Super Frog and Mr. E to the rescue!
