I'm archiving here what we looked at and listened to during Term 2. The current selections will be up on the Look and listen with us page. -->
Folk songs: Tall Men Riding, Калинка (Russian), and Ой, на горі жито (Ukrainian)
The folk songs are the same throughout the term:
English video and info, Russian words, Ukrainian words (and sheet music!)
Ukrainian music (I can't get it onto the playlist above for some reason.)
Hymns change monthly. Here are December's:
Russian video with words
O God, Our Help In Ages Past
О имя Иисуса
I'll Fly Away
Красота Иисуса Светись во Мне (words)
And we'll spend two weeks on each piece of art and classical music.
*I've obviously chosen the Russian and Ukrainian songs on my own. A note on how I choose the hymns: if the Russian version of the English hymn is something that we actually sing, I use it. Otherwise, I try to pick something classically Russian or just something that we like. Folk songs are just from two disks of folk songs for children--specifically for children!--that we have.
