The CORE Pasifika team has recorded a selection of songs which have been made available to support early childhood teachers with the teaching and learning of languages and cultures of Pasifika peoples.
In the Pasifika cultures songs make an important contribution to the languages and cultures of Pasifika peoples. They form part of everyday family life, church, and community events. Songs express the cultural values and demonstrate a wide range of effective language uses.
Learning Pasifika languages through songs enables teachers and students to learn language and culture in a meaningful and authentic context that embraces and promotes effective language learning.
The Pasifika Early Childhood Education Songs CD (11 songs) is available for $15 + GST.
The CD plus a copy of the lyrics is available for $20 + GST.
