You can print out copies of the song, in color or black & white, and hand them out to each student or display in the classroom using a projector, overhead, etc. One method is to have your beginning students learn/play the melody while your more advanced students learn/play the accompanying chords. It may be helpful to provide examples of this particular folk song (which can be found on YouTube) so that students can perform together with more rhythmic accuracy.
I like to repeat the song and make little arrangements by alternating between group playing and solo playing. This is a great way to feature stronger players and makes for more engaging and dynamic performances. Enjoy! :)
