GAMES CHILDREN SING: Malaysia Songbook & CD

Item No: 6347


Malay, Chinese, and Tamil-Indian Children's Songs and Lore by Jackie Chooi-Theng Lew & Patricia Campbell

Games Children Sing Malaysia is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to discover authentic songs, games, chants and folktales from Malaysia. Incorporating materials from the predominant cultures of Malaysia — Malay, Chinese, and Tamil-Indian — Games Children Sing Malaysia includes a range of activities with connections to music, social studies, language arts, storytelling, history, cuisine, dance, and nature.

Each authentic song uses melodies that are easy to learn and fun to sing, and includes text in the original language as well as an English translation. Active classroom participation is encouraged through the use of singing games, dances, rhythm instruments, and Orff instruments. Anecdotes and recipes from a native Malaysian enhance the learning experience.

For ease in learning the songs, a CD is included with the book. The CD contains three tracks for each song: a full recording sung by a native speaker in the original language, the words spoken slowly, and the song sung phrase by phrase, a cappella, with time for student echoing.
