St. Ann School

"All information was presented in an easy to follow way. A great way to teach diversity through the universal language of music.”

Music Teacher
Mandy Bailey

"I am finishing this unit with my fifth graders. It has been a fascinating and superbly fun unit . I never knew anything about waulking before, but this has taught me so much! Through this unit the kids get some great cultural exposure, interesting foreign language, a deeper way to think about work and community, creatIve lyric writing, working together on a task, and an appreciation for what has come before. I love that there are so many extensions all included, from videos to teaching audio, to Maps and flags, to additional language lessons. It inspired the kids to go beyond the unit and investigate their own heritage, ethnic clothing, and playful solo singing. My principal happened to sit in on one of the lessons and was absolutely fascinated! She loved it !”

"I really like how the layout of the lesson is very clear and sequential! I love that the children will think about times that they have persevered and will be able to use this lesson as a reminder when they are struggling with something.. I also like the exit ticket requiring students to sequence events- this is such an important skill that they need to learn in second grade!”
