Folksong PartnersFlexible Favorites for Unison and Part-Singing Fun! By Mary Donnelly and George L.O. StridClassroom kit (Teacher book and P/A CD)Gr. 1-6
Folksongs are not only fun to sing, but teach about multicultural heritage and provide a better understanding of music concepts with their repetitive rhythms and melodies. So, what better way to introduce young singers to beginning part-singing than with folksongs! The popular writing team of Mary Donnelly and George Strid add their creative touch to twelve folksong favorites with this flexible collection that can be used throughout the elementary grades.
The reproducible singer songsheets feature each folksong and its partner on separate pages for a variety of teaching options. Teach these folksong favorites in the lower grades. When singers are ready, teach the partner song, and add twelve more songs to their singing repertoire. For further challenge, sing the folksong and its partner separately and then together for twelve more performance options! A helpful teaching sequence and extension activities are also included. Accompany your singers live with simple piano parts printed in the Teacher Edition, or use quality recordings on the Performance/Accompaniment CD, which is available separately or in the Classroom Kit.
