Banana Splits Ways into Part-Singing Compiled;and Edited by Ana Sanderson Sprial-bound Book 80 pages This super selection of songs, chants, and games provides excellent, easy ways into part-singing for children. There are echo songs, conversation songs, call and response, rounds, chants, partner songs and more. Some are familiar songs and some are newly composed. The songs are short enough and repetitive enough for children to learn by rote. In addition, for educational purposes within a school, permission is given to write the words or music of a song by hand onto a blackboard or transparency. Each song gives the type of song (canon, partner song, etc.), lyrics, notation of the melody line with guitar chord letters and first verse of lyrics, and teaching tips; some also include a piano accompaniment. Suggestions for sound effects, body percussion, or pitched or unpitched percussion add variety throughout the book.,; For ages 7-11.; Contents: Tips for Teaching. , Simple Starters (songs for keeping the beat going): Banana Splits, Clap Your Hands, Choo Choo, Chuffers & Sneezers, Nanuma (short version), Traffic Lights, Jack-in-the-box.,; It Takes 2 (call & response, conversation & echo songs): Mr. Clicketty Cane, Sing a Little Song, Ewe, Which Note, The Green Cross Code, Have You Ever, The Telephone Song, Poppycock Pie, Time For a "Hocket", I Hear the Bells, Dham Dham Dham, Tongo, TV Tantrum, Tambourine Talk, Sports Day Race, Jungle Sounds, Down by the Bay. , Over & Over (songs with ostinato parts): More Jungle Sounds, Make Up Your Own Ostinato (1), 4 White Horses, Parade Day, Beat Box, The Shark, Nanuma (extended version), Make Up Your Own Ostinato (2), I Love the Flowers, How Doth the Little Crocodile, The Band. , After You (rounds & canons): Can You Dig That Crazy Gibberish, Autumn Leaves, Music Alone Shall Live, Kum Bachur Atzel, Behind the Action, Emanuel, Jelly on a Plate, The Human Drum Kit, Tomorrow's Another Day, Fiddle Diddle, Food Feast, Rings & Circles, By the Waters of Babylon, Noah's Shanty. , How Fitting (partner songs): Big Ben Bean, London Bridge/ Pease Pudding Hot, 10 Green Bottles/ Green Glass, Alleluia Amen/ Michael Row the Boat Ashore, Partner Syllables, God Bless the Master, Mums & Dads. , Just Desserts (performance songs with independent parts): Wipe Sniff Drip, I Wanna Sing Scat, Hello Goodbye, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Cat & Mouse Games, Stand by Me, El Condor Pasa, 1-2-3-4, Soualle. , Acknowledgements; Index of First Lines & Titles.
