I was so happy to see my friends in Mrs. Morgan’s class for the first “Sing Books” of 2012!
Here’s what we sang,
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Poem by Jane Taylor
Illustrated by Jerry Pinkney
(This gorgeously illustrated book gets a gold star for using the mostly unacknowledged FULL text of the poem)
Words by Sheldon Harnick
Music by Jerry Bock
Illustrated by Ian Schoenherr
This song is from the musical “Fiddler on the Roof”
We sang “50 Nifty” TWICE…once with the book and a second time, a capella, pointing to the states on the map as we sang the state names. It was a challenge, but we’re getting better at it!
GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK
Singable Picture Books of the Great American Songbook and Michael Feinstein’s Foundation for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook
A SEMESTER OF SCHOOL IN 5 SONGS (Part 1, for Kindergarten and Up)
This set covers topics in Biology, United States History, Geography, Poetry, Civics and Music.
