Compiled by music teacher Denise Gagne, this handout contains a wide sampling of singing games for both primary and intermediate students. Several of these games are also available as part of Gagne's "MusicPlay Curriculum," which I also highly recommend for beginning music teachers!
What a great collection! This book contains a dozen time-tested singing games from the New England Dancing Masters, a group of musicians and teachers dedicated to the preservation of traditional folk dances and singing games. My kids especially like "Down Down Baby!"
A very interesting read about the importance of singing games and other musical activities in the early years of a child's development. There is good material here for explaining the important of singing games and music to both parents and administration.
An incredible, comprehensive, FREE resource! I love how the author has grouped singing games by country of origin. Featuring guitar chords, lyrics, and video demonstrations, there are lots of great ideas to be found here.
This circle singing game requires everybody to work together (and have fun doing so!) My students love how they continually swap partners and the fast pace of the activity. The hosting YouTube channel contains several other great demonstrations of great singing games.
