Let’s sing a Chinese song.

This week we had some musical class for the third grades. We taught a Chinese song–pull the radish. Music has its special charm, which can stride across the obstacles easily among different languages.

这周我们有了一些音乐课,为三年级的孩子上的。我们挑选了一首简单的中文歌——拔萝卜。音乐有它特有的魅力,可以轻易地跨越不同语言之间的障碍。

Pull the radish

We started this musical class with a interesting story:“ One day, the rabbit was very hungry, she want to find some food to eat. Find a moment, she find a big radish in the field.But she can’t pull it out. At this time, a little tabby cat was passing by.”Can you help me to pull the radish out?”…

我们以一个有趣的故事来讲述这首歌的背景。“一天,一只兔子太饿了,她想找些吃的,她找了一会终于在田野里找到了一个大萝卜,但是她自己不能把它拔下来,这时,一只小花猫路过,于是兔子向她寻求帮助……

We learned the Chinese song after this story.

这个故事过后,就有了下面的中文歌。

Pull the radish, pull the radish.

Heavy ho, heavy ho, pull the radish.

Heavy ho, heavy ho, can’t pull it out.

(The little tabby cat) come in a big hurry.

Come over and help us to pull the radish.

拔萝卜,拔萝卜。嗨哟,嗨哟,拔萝卜。嗨哟,嗨哟,拨不动。(小花猫),快快来,快来帮我们拔萝卜。

To make the song more interesting, we decided to make the students to perform this song.There were many roles in this song: the little tabby cat; the little tabby dog; the old grandma. Besides we increased more roles that we had learnt in last class: dad; mom; big brother; little brother; big sister; litter sister.The kids enjoy the show.

为了让这首歌更有趣,我们想让学生表演这首歌。这首歌有很多角色:小花猫;小花狗;老奶奶。除此之外,我们增加了更多上节课学过的词语成为新的角色:爸爸(呀),妈妈(呀),哥哥(呀),弟弟(呀);妹妹(呀)。孩子们玩的不亦乐乎。

Finally, they pull the radish out together.

最终,他们一起拔下来萝卜。

At the first class, I found the kids too love performing to sing the song.It’s not good.What’s the important is that the kids to learn this song.

在第一次课,我发现孩子们太在意表演以至于忘了唱歌,但是唱歌才是我们的重点。这点课前没有料到的。

So in the next class, I told the kids you need to sing the song and watching the performing when others performed.It’ s become better.

所以在下一节课,我向孩子们强调,你们需要在别人表演时唱歌并观看表演。这样变得好多了。
