Read & Sing Folksongs
By Emily Crocker
Book and Enhanced CD
79 pages
Grades 3 - 6

Learn to read and sing a wealth of folksong history. Kick up your heels with singing and dancing games, a play party, hoedown, counting out rhyme, spirituals, sea shanty, riverboat work song, and more! Well-written lesson plans take you step-by-step from melody to harmony. Learn a song as you play a game activity. Practice selected rhythm and melodic patterns to help sight read the song. Add a simple ostinato or partner melody for instant harmony. Decide on the form, and then switch it up each time you perform! Add classroom percussion parts provided, or create your own. Sing a cappella or with the recording on the enclosed CD, or perform live with the piano/vocal arrangements printed in the Teacher Book. Simple choreography suggestions are listed above the piano scores. Choreography videos by John Jacobson are available free online.

The Teacher Book comes with an Enhanced CD of audio recordings and PDFs of the singer songsheets in full color or black/white, so you can project or print what you want.
