Process
Warm-up: S sings through Ram Sam Sam once as a group.
T brings out two papers with large emojis on them. One looks like The Scream (scared) and one
is a wide open-mouthed (smiley).
T asks S to bring their hands to their face and make a scared emoji and then a smile emoji, each
time saying “a ram sam sam.”
S makes the corresponding face and vowel change when T holds up the corresponding emoji.
S sings full song one more time together. T holds up scared emoji if S begins to broaden their
vowels.
T breaks the group in half and asks Maggie to help lead the first group for a two-part round.
If there is difficulty, T asks S to listen to their own group and watch their leader.
Closing: S will then switch parts and the first group will enter the round second.

Process
Warm-up: “Pat with me.” T begins by asking S to pat legs with T. S listen to T sing Ram Sam
Sam the whole way through for the first time.
“Repeat after me.” S then repeats after T the first two measures, then the next two measures. S
then repeats the complete first half after T.
“Listen & help me out: is this the same or different?” S then listens to T singing mm 5-8,
answering if it was the same or different from the first part.
“Repeat after me” S then repeats T of mm 5-6, then mm 7-8. Then S repeats the complete
second half after T.
Closing: “From the beginning, altogether now.” S & T then sing all of Ram Sam Sam
together. S & T give a self-pat-on-the-back if everyone did a great job.
