Teaching idea & activities

This is one more round (see also “Frère Jacques”,  “Banuwa”, “Kookaburra” and “Jack and Jill“). That means that the melody can be sung exactly the same by more voices, entering one after the other. For this specific song the round comes every one or every two measures.

When teaching a round, or a canon, try to let the children sing by themselves, turn your back to them and start singing the second voice without having explained exactly what was going to happen.

Some of them will keep their voice, others will follow the teacher, but the song sounds already in two voices. At this point you can teach the concept of the canon or round more easily , depending on the age and the level of the class.


 

In-class Activity

Children sit in pairs opposite to each other, join both hands and sway back and forth in the tempo of the song.
