Teach “Alouette”

"Alouette" is a traditional French folk song about plucking a bird. This cheery song describes each part of the bird that the singer is going to pluck. This song is a call and response - a solo singer sings and the singers respond. This makes it easier to teach because the students aren’t expected to learn every phrase in the song - only the responses - and they can hear the pronunciation of the French from the solo singer.
