After playing the game we discussed various ways to help children match pitch.

In the Lulu Game, it helps to take away their sense of sight, put the tuning fork right
ear, and sing along with them. If they cannot match pitch you could:


*Have them sing whooo ee as high as they can with the whole class. If
they are able to use their head voice, have them sing the Lulu song on any

high pitch that they can.


*Play Paolas elevator game: holding both hands with the teacher, make the
elevator go up and down with your voices

*Ask them to use their Mickey Mouse voice
