We can work it out

I am really looking forward to having Teranga visit us next month.

We have been working with some year 5 boys on the song Somalia. It was really funny to watch the the actions that the students associated with "hard work" (we have been using, movements which were demonstrated and then copied, to reinforce the "call" and "response" structure of the song). We did get the usual lifting, pulling, pushing etc. but we also had some "hard work" on the computer - very fast fingers! It made for an entertaining activity.

As a result, I have heard the song wafting around the school all day - very catchy!

Hi Michelle,
Sounds like so much fun!
Have you tried the rumba dance with your students? I'm sure they would love the chicken, the elephant and the lion. Enjoy!
