Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Archive for February 6th, 2013

We had a “snow” day on Monday even though it just rained.  It snowed on Friday and everyone marched right on in with no troubles.  With this new paradigm of unpredictable weather, we just roll with it.  It was fun rollin’ along with some wonderful songs in the classes of Ms. Morgan (K), Ms. Everett (K), Ms. Mason (K), Ms. Allen (2), Ms. Howard (2), Mr. Mitchell (K), and Ms. Shorter (K).

We sang a selection from this list in each of the classes, assembled here in alphabetical order:
