Teach “Charlie Over the Ocean”

Teach the song by rote. Since this is an echo song - sing a phrase and have the students echo. If you don’t feel comfortable singing for your students, play a phrase on the video and have your students echo.

Learn the game for “Charlie Over the Ocean”

Copy Link
Song Used: Charlie Over the Ocean

Learn the game for “Charlie Over the Ocean”

Choose one student to be Charlie. Charlie is the leader of the singing. While singing,Charlie walks around the outside of the circle. The class echoes, singing the part in the brackets. At the end of the song, Charlie touches a students that they have gone past. The student that is touched leaves the circle and tries to tag (not tackle!) Charlie before Charlie gets to the hole in the circle.

An interesting variation of this game is to have the solo singer make up new verses of what Charlie caught. ex: Charlie caught a cold; Charlie caught the kitchen.

Optional: Teach the Orff arrangement for “Charlie Over the Ocean”

Copy Link
Song Used: Charlie Over the Ocean

Optional: Teach the Orff arrangement for “Charlie Over the Ocean”

Teach the students the Orff arrangement. To extend the activity, use the song and orchestration as an A section, and have students create a B section or movement. Discuss and decide on a final form for your performance.

B Section Idea: Improvisation activity. Brainstorm a list of oceans in the world. You can use a map of the world and show your students where the oceans are located.
For example: Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic. Chant the names of the oceans, and accompany with body percussion.

Sing and play the A section, chant the oceans twice as a B section, and then repeat the A. You could create more than one list of oceans, and create a C section, turning your final performance into a rondo.

Teach “Down by the Bay”

Song Used: Down by the Bay

Teach “Down by the Bay”

This song is fun to sing and great for creating new rhyming verses. Students love to create their own verses for this song. Ask for volunteers to make up new verses.
Examples:
Did you ever see a hog sitting on a log?
Did you ever see a llama wearing red pajamas?

If you have more volunteers than you have time, ask the students to all turn to their neighbor and sing their new verse to their neighbor. They’ll all have the chance to share with someone, and it won’t take an hour to hear everyone’s verse.
