Audio Single Song – Had A Little Rooster
— OR —
Time Signature: 3/4 Key: A Major
Had A Little Rooster is a traditional American folk song, over 100 years old.
It is a cumulative song where a new verse is added about an animal and the sounds they make, each time the song is sung.
It is also known as “I Had A Little Rooster” and has many variations, like all traditional folk songs.
Here’s some other titles:
This folk song is written in 3/4 waltz time, with it’s accent on the first beat followed by two weak beats.
Children can learn to identify the accented beat and two weak beats by following a teacher or adult demonstrating different actions.
accent = hands on head x 1
weak beat = hands on shoulders x 2
The cumulative nature of this song teaches children to memorize animals in the order they are sung, going backwards to the beginning animal, (the Rooster), each time a new verse is sung.
The use of a storyboard or felt board can aid young children in learning and memory skills.
It is good practice to give children choices about which animals they want to sing about and the sounds they want to use to represent the animals chosen.
Teaching Points: 3/4 time (waltz); memory development; word substitution; storyboard.
