As part of its fundraising efforts, the ACMF is developing teaching resource packs that contain lesson plans, ideas and music that are available for sale. These downloadable packs are designed to enable teachers who are not trained in the delivery of music lessons to easily engage their children in participatory music activities. Where possible, these lesson packs identify elements of the curriculum that are covered, and suggest extension activities that go beyond music.

While these resources are designed mainly with primary age children in mind, some aspects may be applicable to secondary school activity as well.

We will be developing more resource packs during 2020, so check back every so often to see what’s been added!

Harmony Day – $25

Harmony Day is held every year on the 21st March to coincide with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The message of Harmony Day is everyone belongs. It’s a day to celebrate Australia’s diversity – a day of cultural respect. What better way to celebrate than through the medium of song? We have included four songs from different cultures in this resource –“A Ram Sam Sam”, “Land of the Silver Birch”, “Senua De Dende” and “Si Si Si”. The first two are more suitable for younger children, and the last two for older children. However, you, as the teacher, know what your children can manage! MP3s are provided of each song, with and without vocal tracks. For each song there is a ‘how to best teach this’ guide, and steps to make the learning process as easy as possible – but please see this only as a guide! Hopefully you may be inspired to create some new teaching ideas of your own from this resource. As with all ACMF teaching resources, there are links throughout the document identifying which elements of the National Curriculum are being addressed. Happy singing!

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.

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.

‘Advance Australia Fair’ Indigenous Languages Version – $25

The ZIP file that you can download contains four MP3 audio files – the full version of ‘Advance Australia Fair’ with sung lyrics and no lyrics, one track of the phrases in Dharawal/Dharug, and one track of individual words in Dharawal/Dharug. It also contains a PDF with teaching notes, written lyrics and pronunciation guides, and implementation notes.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas – $25

This resource was developed after a number of primary teachers approached us for help with a song for Christmas performances. ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ was popular with many teachers we spoke to, as it’s easy to sing, has no religious overtones and is very versatile. The download pack contains 2 MP3 files of the song, one with vocals and the other without, and a pdf with teaching notes, lyrics, and other Christmas activities. All activities are linked to the particular National Curriculum items that the activities address. Some schools do not have many percussion instruments, so the resource has ideas about how to make a number of different instruments using household items. Some of these ideas are better suited to older children, all of them can be decorated and personalised, and all of them make great sounds. This resource is intended as a guide for teachers – hopefully you will be inspired to create some new teaching ideas of your own from this resource!
