Can’t get this song out of your head? Well neither can we!
Dig deeply into the lyrics for comprehension and close reading practice with these high-interest, current songs to allow children to use their deduction and inference skills. This comprehension is based on the song ‘Mamma Mia’ from the Mamma Mia movie and Abba of course because:
1) We all love the song Mamma Mia.
2) It’s something a little bit different to analyse a song.
The children discussed the lyrics in detail, trying to decide what they meant. It allowed them to appreciate the lyrics in songs and not just to sing them.
There is a mix of questions involved in these comprehensions, asking children to:
*locate information from the text
*rate the effectiveness of certain words and EXPLAIN the reason for the answer
*form an opinion on the lyrics. Do they like/dislike the lyrics? Why?
Overall, children will gain an understanding of the meaning behind the lyrics and they will be encouraged to form opinions on a song, which is something a little bit different. I hope you enjoy this resource as much as we did!
