Old Dan Tucker (Free Download)

July 30, 2017




This classic folk song is a favorite in my classroom and really gets my students energized. Best suited for 3rd-5th grade, this song can be used with movements to create a high-energy mini performance.

Teaching Sequence:

  • Teach Refrain by having the students echo one line at a time then chunk two or more lines together.

  • Teach the first verse using call and response

  • Link the first verse and the refrain

  • Teach the second and third verse, linking them to the refrain.

Note: I originally found an arrangement of this song on www.bethsnotes.com and created a rearrangement and backing track. Visit Beth's site for more folk songs like this one.
