Overall rating 4 out of 54.4 (5 ratings)

Last updated 16 June 2013, created 17 June 2010, viewed 32,912

Songs with different features and vocal exercises. Two vocal tongue twisters are used for a warm-up exercise and then we learn three songs: Kye Kye Kule - a West African action song, The Frog Song - a simple Japanese song rehearsing pitch, John Kanaka - a sea shanty with call and refrain. More…Each song has a different feature and may be more appropriate to different age groups, they can be used as repertoire for developing Ongoing Skills (Units 1, 8 and 15) or within specific units, e.g. Kaeruno uta ga - Unit 5 Taking Off: Exploring pitch.

Great to use with all ages. Have used with P1 and P7! Like the cultural element.

Embedding video. In this modern world of Learning Platforms and Virtual Learning Environments, it would be handy if this video had the HTML code so teachers could embed it into their websites to actually use in the classroom. Far more powerful than putting in a weblink to the whole page...
