In our current Unit of Inquiry, Pre 5 students are learning how children around the World use music for learning and entertainment. This is allowing us to explore the key concepts of Function and Perspective.
Throughout the process each student is filling up a passport-photo album with memories from our trip, including the country’s flag, the name of the song, its use, an artifact and a personal reflection.
Below you will see a link to the website where you can find the songs and videos and a list of the songs we are learning. I would like to recommend you to visit the website and enjoy the songs and games that the students are learning in class. Over the next few weeks I will add links to this post with the songs we have learned.
To find all the songs visit: www.mamalisa.com
