by Aaron Hall A4 softcover book & CD, 56pp ISBN:0 646 34355 6
This is a unique teaching resource which uses good teaching practice to bring the learning of Indonesian to life. It is comprised of twenty five catchy chants using simple conversational Indonesian embeded in contextually appropriate indonesian settings chanted to a rhythm provided by gamelan music, and fifteen Action Rhymes which are songs with modern music as backing. The Action Rhymes are designed to involve body movement, and are especially suited to younger learners. These songs and chants are specifically designed for the teaching of Indonesian as a LOTE, and as such the words that have been selected will be familiar to the student. The gamelan music is provided by world class musicians from Yogyakarta and West Java, and will immerse the students in the music of Indonesia.
As published in the MLTAT (Modern Language Teachers' Association of Tasmania) newsletter
In this review I will focus on the Indo Chants, which are brilliant. The five vocalists from different parts of Indonesia bring an irresistible energy, enjoyment and sense of play to the simple chants. The listeners' attention is further attracted by the gamelan music (traditional Indonesian orchestra) which accompanies the chants. To ears accustomed to Western music it makes an interesting and intriguing sound.
Teachers will find the book useful and informative. There is a page illustrating and describing the gamelan instruments. For each chant there is a transcript, an illustration, a vocabulary list and language/culture points. In fact the appealing layout of each page would make it a good handout for students but copyright does not seem to allow this*. At the back of the book a translation is provided for all the chants and rhymes. In addition to a list of contents, there is a list headed 'Curriculum Connections' which organizes the chants according to topics such as 'Food', Going places', Time" and 'Daily activities'. The chants cover everyday situations using conversational Indonesian. They could be used either to consolidate or introduce a particular topic or expression.
After my students had studied greetings, I decided to consolidate by playing the greeting chant. It worked really well; from Year 3 to Year 6, students were captivated. Most students couldn't resist joining in and many still remembered the chant a week later. Particularly pleasing was how they picked up the intonation, pronunciation and flow of the native speakers. Indo Chants demonstrates how language and culture are best learnt when taught simultaneously.

As reviewed in "Berita Bahasa Indonesia", NSW Curriculum Support Directorate, Indonesian Bulletin.
The book is divided into two parts, chants and action rhymes. It has a table of contents and the chants and rhymes are also listed in curriculum areas.The book also has a section explaining the gamelan orchestra and the vocals. Each page with a chant has a box explaining language and cultural points and translation of some words. There is a full translation of each rhyme and chant at the back of the book. Each action rhyme has a full description of the actions to go with the rhyme.
I used the Indo Chants & Action Rhymes with three different classes - a grade 3, a K - 2 composite class and a 3 - 6 composite class. The reaction of all three classes was very similar. They all enjoyed the music and the "funny voices", and also enjoyed the swaying and moving with the beat of the chant.
I asked the grade 3 - 4 composite class for some comments. They were as follows: "Fun", "Cool", "I liked dancing with the music", I liked the voices and the musical instruments" All comments were positive. I found the resource very user-friendly and appropriate for teachers at any level of Indonesian language learning. I too had three fun lessons with my class using the Indo Chants and Action Rhymes.

We know how role-plays and dramas have become integral components of the LOTE curriculum. They facilitate the development of oral and aural skills and provide a genuine context in which to explore the language, and kids love them. Four different general resource paks are currently available to cater to your specific needs. High Schools have larger clothes size, but no "Fron Kancil to Kartini" books.
This pak consists of a wide variety of teaching resources, which will assist your teaching over a broad spectrum of needs. Role-play items, books, CD (including the "Indo Chants and Action Rhymes"), posters, and many more items. If your requirements cover the broad spectrum, then this is the Pak for you.
This pak caters for those teachers who specifically require materials to help them develop the role-play and drama capabilities of their students. The pak consists of a wide variety of traditional and contemporary clothing and props which will enable you to present role-plays in a variety of settings, including farms, shops, markets, homes, schools and mosques.
This pak is a combined pak of the "LOTE Indo Res. Pak" plus the "Role-play Extension Pak" and enables a school to obtain the best possible value by buying in larger quantities.
This pak is something like a condensed version of the "LOTE Indo Resources Pak", and may be the Pak for you.
