American Folk Songs

Dear friends and partners,
We'd like to share short videos about the first settlers and pioneers of America. You can listen to the popular songs of Stephen Foster,the "father of American music", and also you can use them in your lessons of Music, History, Geography, Literature, etc. It will help you to provide CLIL/Content and Language Integrated Learning/which is one of the most innovative purposes. Hope that you will like our suggestion!
Kind regards, Bulgarian Team

The Camptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da
The Camptown racetrack's five miles long
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin' to run all night
Goin' to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray...

Traditional Children's Songs

Dear friends and partners,
We'd like to share two famous traditional songs. Oh! Susanna is written by American composer Stephen Foster in 1847, and soon becomes a popular American folk song. London Bridge is Falling Down is another traditional children's song. You can use them in your work with pupils. Hope that you will like our suggestion!
Kind regards, Bulgarian Team

I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
I'm going to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.

It rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
The sun so hot, I froze to death
Susannah, don't you cry.

Oh, Susannah,
Oh don't you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee...

Photos from Kent, the UK

Dear friends and partners,
I'd like to share some photos from magnificent Canterbury. I was there and think that it's one of the most beautiful places in the world. You can listen to the famous Irish song The Dubliners - Molly Malone. Hope that you will like it!
Many hugs and kisses,Reny

In Dublin's fair city,
Where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel-barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"
"Alive, alive, oh,
Alive, alive, oh",
Crying "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh".
She was a fishmonger,
But sure 'twas no wonder,
For so were her father and mother before,
And they each wheeled their barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"
She died of a fever,
And no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"

Happy summer

Hello friends! We have a surprise! The youngest children from kindergarten prepared this sunny seaside greeting to you all. They will take part in our project next year. The song they sing is called Song of the sun. Here are the lyrics:
Song of the Sun
The Sun is laughing merrily: ha ....
Let's wave with hands to him: like that
Let’s stamp our feet of him: like that
Let us turn and sing : tra-la-la ...

We draw pictures of the sea, which is near Shumen - only 100 km. We sincerely hope you can enjoy our film. Waiting for your comments. Happy vacation to all friends from Poland, Portugal, Turkey, Romania and Sofia.
