In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
In this activity, children hear (and/or learn) a simple children's song in another language. After children hear a song, invite them to guess its meaning, based on the melody, tempo, voices singing, and mood of the song: Is it happy or sad, reverent or fun? Are children singing to one another, or adults to children? Does it sound as if the singers are counting, or saying people's names? If you choose to teach a song, ask the children to guess its meaning only after they have learned the song.
