A Ram Sam Sam

  • I find students really enjoy choosing a theme and making up their own words for this song e.g. cars "A holden ute..." works well for the first line.
  • There are a couple of good examples of ti-tika in this song, you just have to be aware of the anacrusis when deriving the rhythm.
  • Students can make up their own actions - a different action per line!
