Chances are good that your young students have heard this song before, which will aid them in interpreting the rhythm of the melody.

I like to close the piano lid, hold both hands above the lid, then tap or "play" the tune on the lid with the appropriate hand as we sing the words (with the whole hand, not the fingers).

Now here are two nearly identical arrangements, except the second one has a few filled chords in the right hand, making it a great deal harder.
