Play ‘question and answer’ games using our voices or instruments

Little Soundabout: Level 4 | Card: 43 | Category: Interactive

Play this game by transferring the ‘call and response’ songs we have sung onto instruments

  • Try taking it in turns with me to sing the lines of children‘s songs that I’ve heard a lot; you start off to begin with
  • If I don’t get the hang of it at first, you could try modelling the musical dialogue for me with other family members or friends
  • Try using spirituals such as ‘Michael row the boat ashore’ and ‘Kum bah yah’, where one voice follows another with a different line
  • Try it using pop songs or theme tunes from my favourite children’s programmes or games:take it in turns to sing one phrase each
  • Use the Soundabout Music Tracks: Motifs and Songs resources
  • Try re-creating the fragments of music on instruments or tablets
  • Record what we do to listen to afterwards; I may want to join in!
