Full scale option before beginning exercise

It would be great to add an option for students to hear and sing with the appropriate scale for the exercise before beginning. This will help their ear get into the particular key for that exercise and give them a chance to sing confidently, with the idea that they transfer their confident, supported singing into their sightreading exercises. Especially for my beginning students, it has been hard for them in middle school to establish tonality on their own at home without a teacher or classmates to sing together. Right now I have them toggling back and forth between singing their C Major diatonic scale and then recording their exercise, and it is tough for many of them.
