This week we have learnt an Australian song "Kookaburra"
I love this video of the class learning another countries song! I think that is a great way to educate students in a fun way, especially when in come to learning cross-cultural traditions! I love it!
Well done everyone! I have a huge smile across my face :)
Dear Kookaburra Singers!Wow! Great voices and terrific English! I really enjoyed your presentation.:-)From,Mrs. YollisCalifornia
Hello friends,I really enjoyed talking to you yesterday through Skype. Your school is much larger than ours and it is in the city. It will be great to have friends in a school, city and country that is rather different to ours. I hope we can learn lots from each other. Maybe we could teach you a song from New Zealand. First we will teach you about kiwis! The kiwi is ready to start his journey over to you. I hope he flies quickly and arrives soon. Best wishes,Miss Knight (Livewires)
Dear Alicia,Thank you for visiting our blog! We like singing songs and making projects very much! Lyudmila and class
Dear Mrs. Yollis,Thank you very much for your comment! It motivates students to new achivements in learning English :=)Lyudmila and class
Dear Sue,We really enjoyed singing your song especially the guy in the center of "composition". I can't help laughing when I watch this video. Thanks again for this gift. Lyudmila and class
Dear Miss Knight and The Livewires,Thank you very much for Skyping! It was a great experience for us. Everybody in our school was impressed by this event ! And we were the main heroes! Students began looking at the map and asking questions about New Zealand. Our principal even promised to install a smart board in our classroom :=)(Although I am not sure she will keep her promise). As for me, it seemed that I forgot my English at all - so excited I was!!! I wonder how Carolyn managed to understand me? :=)Regards,Lyudmila and class
Dear Lyudmila and friends,What fantastic singing! When I was young in school we learned this song also, so you brought back good memories for me.I teach third grade in Connecticut, USA. We also have a class blog. Give us a visit if you get a chance.From, Mr. Salsich
Dear Mr. Salsich,Thank you for visiting our blog and leaving such a nice comment! We sing songs in the lessons because they help us brush up our English and make learning fun!Lyudmila and class
Great video! I love that song and your class seemed to be enjoying it a lot. Our teacher heard kookaburras outside her house this morning. They woke her up!Love The Smarties (in Australia)
Dear The Smarties,Thank you for your comment!We really like singing Australian songs. We got a lot of them from our friends from Australia :=)Lyudmila and class
How much fun!!! I was in a music for elementary teachers course and we learned this song and we did a little skit to it. The kids are so precious. I just love it
Dear Stacy,Thank you for visiting our blog and leaving a nice comment! Students like reading them very much!:=)Regards,Lyudmila and class
What a wonderful video - I am sure that there are many teachers and students in Australia that are very impressed by your students voices and enthusiam! You asked us about the school worms - they eat the left over food from our school lunches (that the students bring to school for lunch) and then we use the worms fertilizer to feed our school gardens! It cuts down on waste and helps the environment!Mr Webb and Room 8, Melville Intermediate School, Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand.
Dear Mr Webb and Room 8,Thank you very much for your great comment to our song! We like your Mihi video and especially Waiata (song). Well done!!!Thank you for answering our question about school worms - it makes us think what useful could we do to make our environment cleaner?!Lyudmila and class
Well done guys! The song sounded excellent. Lot's of our younger students learn that song here in Australia. I will share your video with them this week!
