I'm a little teapot

I’m a little teapot, short and stout, 
Here is my handle, here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up then I shout,
“Tip me over, pour me out!”


About the song:  One of the best known of all English language children's songs, I'm a little teapot is often performed with well known actions.  

About the arrangement:  In this arrangement, the strings mostly play pizzicato, which means that the strings are plucked rather than bowed.  The only exception is at the end of the verse, where the strings play with the bow, and their falling scales imitate the sound of tea being poured out of the teapot.  Children should learn and be able to identify the two string techniques - plucking and bowing.
