Christmas videos

I've been very slow getting anything Christmas up this year. Unfortunately we didn't get any filming done at school, so hopefully you all got plenty of picts of your kiddos singing (hopefully) and hamming it up.

I'll try to get my kids to put something together this weekend for some last-minute Christmas entertainment - if not, happy holidays and we'll see you in January!

Halloween sing-a-long

Download and print the Halloween images. Then create your own picture patterns (see video) for more Halloween sing-a-long songs to familiar tunes!
(You'll want to start with one or two patterns at a time).

Who's Behind that False Face?

This week in music we've been talking about Halloween and all the scary masks and costumes that we may see. We talked about "real" and "pretend", and how just because someone dresses up like a cat (or any other character) that doesn't make that person really turn into a cat. It's just pretend.

We also learned a new word: "False" which means not true, not real. Pretend.

We played a singing game where the kids closed their eyes while one of their friends hid behind our "false face" - (a mask face that was "false" -- or NOT real). At the end of the song the kids guessed who was behind the mask.

Some of the children were great detectives, checking to see who was missing, looking at clothes for clues, etc. They were so anxious to identify who was behind the "false face", they couldn't wait for the end of the song to holler out the name.

A big thanks to the staff for their cooperation in helping me create this fun guessing game. BROWNIES are coming!

The Wheels on the Bus

We did the "wheels on the Bus" last week, and after doing all the hand motions, we let each of the kids choose something to put on the bus. We had snakes, sharks, and lots of dogs and cats on the bus before we were done. What a ride!

Here's a re-visit to last year's "wheels on the bus" video

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice, Three blind mice,
see how they run, see how they run
The chased the farmer's wife about
She said, "Cut it out, you are stressing me out"
They chased her some more 'til she started to pout
Those mischievous three blind mice.
Those mischievous three blind mice.

Humpty D.

Humpty D. on the Prairie

Out on the prairie
the prairie so wide
Humpty Dumpty tipped over
off the wall he did slide.

Now all the king's horses
And all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty
Back together again

Now when you're out ridin'
Along prairie trails
You'll see lonely cowboys
With scrambled eggs in their pails....

Shark Story

Jumpin' Jack

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick
Jack jump over the candlestick
Jack is the jumpin'-est jack by far
He jumped right over the twinkle-little-star

Jump, ja-ack, Jump, ja-ack, Jump, ja-ack,
Jump, ja-ack, Jump, ja-ack, Jump, ja-ack, JUMP, JACK, JUMP!

Jack be nimble
Jack jump far
Jack keep jumpin' wherever you are!
