Pa Mai Waiata-a-ringa

video

We used the video of Pa Mai from earlier in the week to help with the music and words while we were learning the actions to Pa Mai. It is really tricky as a teacher to teach the words, music and actions when teaching waiata-a-ringa on your own to a class of students but having the karoke version playing through the data projector as we were singing made the process much easier. We are using our new CD player with a line in as speakers as well so we get enough volume. By the time it came do it on our own with the guitar we were quite confident with the words and actions. We really enjoyed learning it and did really well in a short length of time. I even use my fancy electronic guitar tuner to tune the guitar as well. ICT really helped
