Students can reinforce "fa" and other solfege aurally and visually-Kodaly practice step- with "Bonjour, Mes Amis", AND learn a little French! Based on a Cajun friend song, the students get a little background about Cajun people and Louisiana, will hear phrases with "fa" and identify them, and will practice their Curwin hand signs, solfege, singing, and aural skills. Students can click on one of three choices each to identify patterns with or without "fa" and sing along, following the Curwin hand signs on the do staff. This is a great activity for Valentine's Day, friendship, AND Mardi Gras! Check out a preview here.
