Over the last 12 months, on our bulletin, Yorkshire Youth & Music has shared a singing and signing resource each month for teachers, TAs, musicians and any other adults who work with primary school aged children. To complement our Great Singing, Great Signing project, we are continuing to share these resources for FREE...
The resources consist of 11 songs - a FULL repertoire of signed warm ups and songs that can be taught and signed with any choir of primary aged children:
- Johnny B Goode
- Three Little Birds
- Any Dream Will Do
- Down in the Jungle
- Circle of Life
- Baby One Two Three
- Hands Tum Knees Bum
- I Once Saw An Elephant
- Rockin' All Over the World
- You Got A Friend In Me
Anyone who works with Deaf and Hearing Impaired (DHI) children can benefit from these resources, and we also feel like that the resources are a great way to integrate DHI children with hearing children through singing.
We have seen the benefits of DHI children engaging in signing and signing activity alongside hearing children first hand and you can read the case study from our Great Singing, Great Signing project here: https://network.youthmusic.org.uk/posts/great-singing-great-signing-case-study
All the songs in the series are accessible and available online for FREE on our YouTube channel, and are all delivered by our GS, GS facilitator, Paul Whittaker OBE.
