Songs and chants by Carolyn Graham Activity worksheets by Lesley Ito

These worksheets are for Tracks 02-33 of CD 3 and correspond to the syllabus of Let’s Go Fourth Edition Level 5.

Teacher's Notes This is a collection of 96 chants and songs by Carolyn Graham, each based on a frequently used language function or grammatical structure. You will find this collection useful for previewing, reinforcement, review, or simply as a way to add some fun to your classes. Though it can be used independently, Let’s Chant, Let’s Sing Greatest Hits corresponds to the syllabus of Let’s Go Fourth Edition.

group 1 chants the lines on the left, and group 2 chants the lines that are indented. After a few chants, the students will become familiar with this pattern.

Step 6 Follow the instructions for extension activities on the “Let’s do an activity!” page.

Presenting the Songs On the recording, the songs and chants are each recorded twice to provide children with clear models. Each chant is heard first by an adult solo voice, to model the rhythm and intonation. Then it is repeated in call-and-response style by a group of children. Each song is heard first by the group of children. This is followed by a karaoke version (music only). After students have mastered the songs, this version provides a challenging opportunity to sing along without the recorded lyrics. It can also be used to do original variations.

Presenting the Chants Step 1 Review the main structure found in the chant (or introduce it, if you haven’t already done so). Use pictures or actual objects whenever possible.

Step 2

Play the first version on the recording once to allow students to become familiar with the chant.

Step 1 Review or introduce the main structure found in the song (follow Step 1 as outlined in “Presenting the Chants”).

Step 2

Play the first version on the recording once to allow students to become familiar with the song.

Step 3 Prepare copies of the “Let's Sing!” worksheets. Before the students look at their worksheets, present the song line by line. Sing each line, then have the students repeat after you. Use the recording to model each line, if you prefer.

Step 4 Have the students open their books. Play the recording again from the beginning. At first, have the students read along with the lyrics to become acquainted with the speed and rhythm of the song. Play the first recording of the song several times and invite students to join in.

Step 3 Prepare copies of the “Let's Chant!” worksheets. Before the students look at their worksheets, begin teaching the chant line by line. Say one line, then have the students repeat after you. Include the claps, which are indicated by asterisks (*). You can use the recording to model each line, if you prefer.

Step 5 Once students have mastered the song, they will be able to try singing along with the karaoke version. At first they can do this as a group. As they become more confident, they may wish to try it in pairs or individually. The karaoke version can also be used for variations or additional verses written by the students.

Step 4 Have the students look at their worksheets. Play the recording again from the beginning. At first, have the class read along silently with the text to get acquainted with the speed and rhythm of the chant. Then the students can join in. Repeat the chant several times.

Step 6 Like the chants, the songs can also be done interactively. Divide the class into appropriate groups for each song. Follow the instructions for extension activities on the “Let’s do an activity!” page.

Step 5 Once the students are comfortable with the chant, divide them into two groups. Most of the chants are designed to be interactive. Have the first group chant the questions, and the second group chant the answers. In other words,

Note: Bring in percussion instruments whenever possible, such as tambourines, maracas, and bells. Let students help you create interesting arrangements to accompany both the songs and the chants. © Oxford University Press. Permission granted to reproduce for instructional use. Level 5
