Sometimes I do silly things to help kids remember what is what in music. Ok, so it’s more than sometimes – I do have to be part dancing clown along with the music teacher package. So I tell kids that an octave has 8 notes in it, just like an octopus has 8 legs!
The octave octopus idea has evolved to the point where I think he needs his own coloring page. I took the liberty of coloring in the eyes, but I think he needs a bow tie and hat too. Maybe your kids would like to help?
