TEACHING RESOURCE FOR DON SPENCER’S “CROCODILE” – $25
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN’S MUSIC FOUNDATION (ACMF)
This module, generated with foundation to year 2 in mind, is designed to not just get children singing, but also exploring song-writing, and the fun and creativity that it can unlock. Don has always spoken about the importance of this skill, and so I wanted to incorporate song-writing in the first group of resources we wrote. ‘Crocodile’ was the perfect inspiration to allow children to get musically creating, either through a simple song, or a musical soundscape. There are also some musical instruments to make and decorate, a fun art idea and some classroom discussions you might like to have with your class as they learn Don’s ‘Crocodile’ song.
There are links to the current National Curriculum for ease of reporting, and each module will allow you to explore something different with your class.
