Is the goal really for my students to find partners? No, the goal is to get into formation so that we can all work together as a team to have this collaborative, embodied, active music making experience.
You don’t really think about it until you’re in it. It’s like teaching a song to your students. Since you know how it goes, and can sing, say and play upside down with your eyes closed… it seems almost inherent.
But just like teaching a song, teaching your students a new singing game requires a very specific sequence. And there are a lot of things you have to think about before you start teaching kids, and honestly? Before you even put your teaching sequence together.
That’s what today’s podcast is all about. We’re diving into exactly how to teach a singing game.
Here’s a few things I share on today’s episode
(1) Whether you should teach the song before or during the game
(2) How to get kids to successfully choose partners and get to their spots to play
(3) A couple things to think about when you consider taking turns
