Love and Friendship

Tune and Chords by Emily Gleichenhaus for Sing Books with Emily
Love and Friendship Emily and Emily SBWE w chords

**********************

**********************

From the beautiful book of love poems selected & illustrated by @chrisriddell50. Compelled at the 1st one to write a tune for EB’s Love&Friendship. I didn’t have time to find paper before tune flew coop, so had 2 write in book (cringe). But a new song is born. @booknookhove

LOVE&FRIENDSHIP by Emily&Emily I just couldn’t help it. I’d been reading a book of love poems selected and illustrated by Chris Riddell in higglety-pigglety order and decided to sit down and read it from p.1 so as to not miss anything. I hit a roadblock on the first one (Love and Friendship my Emily Bronte) when suddenly a tune popped into my head and I had to capture it before it flew the coop. So, an hour later (sorry, no time to fix hair or put on makeup), I made a scratch video so I could remember how it goes. I was in such a hurry to note the chords, that I wrote them in the book. There goes its mint condition as it’s also signed by Mr. Riddell (thanks to the cute BookNook independent bookshop in UK). At least there’s a new little song in the world. I look forward to sharing it with kids in classrooms and libraries.

Exciting package arrived from @booknookhove in UK. @chris_riddell drawing with each Guardians of Magic pre-order. Mr Riddell is one of my favorite illustrators, so this was irresistible. I also purchased a signed copy of the love Poems he selected and illustrated. I hope he will illustrate a song or two! Sure would be fun to introduce his pictures to kids in classrooms and libraries with a song. The poetry book does have delightful pictures for the OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT, one of my favorite songs to sing. Fun reading is afoot! And I’ll enjoy the drawing, too. Support Independent Bookstores!

mary had a little lamb (colors) jarvis
Mary Had a Little Lamb (Let’s learn our Colors)

Based on the Traditional Song Mary Had a Little Lamb
Adaptation by Jarvis
Illustrated by Jarvis

This is an adorable and delightfully illustrated adaptation of Mary Had a Little Lamb.  Full of creatures, sounds, colors, and joy.  There’s a lot of learning packed into this book, but the little ones will never know! And this sweet little thing could be a fun springboard for lots of fun activities, like exploration of colors, discussion about the animals (their habitats and characteristics), and storytelling (like what were each group of animals doing before or after joining Mary.

**********************

If you play ukulele, guitar, or piano, use these chords to get the singing started:

C
Mary had a little lamb
G7                 C
Little lamb, little lamb

Mary had a little lamb
G7                                             C
Whose fleece was white as snow

Here’s an example of an Americana Folk Song:

I’ve Been Working on the Railroad

Traditional Words and Tune
Edited by Ann Owen
Illustrated by Sandra D’Antonio

**********************

I has such a fun day Singing Books at Timber Lane Elementary School this on 10/2/2019. I got to meet with two PreK classes, two First Grade classes, and one lovely Second Grade class. Every single time I get to share songs with a class, I walk away feeling so good about life. We sing songs together and they songs convey and incredible range of benefits, just a few of which include:

  • Singing together creates a sense of community among the participants
  • Many songs convey historical and common knowledge
  • Singing songs helps kids learn to cooperate together and that cooperating is highly pleasurable
  • Singing songs enhances emotional intelligence, empathy, and understanding among others
  • Singing songs can help kids have better mathematical sense
  • Singing songs increased vocabulary and the sense of how language can be used simply to communicate big ideas
  • Singing is one of the only activities that engages THE ENTIRE BRAIN

With the PreK group, I’m going to focus mostly on rhymes and talking about how the language works and understanding vocabulary.

With the older kids this week, I wanted to focus on singing Americana SongsI explained that Americana Songs are uniquely American songs, often folk songs, that convey folk heritage and American stories

The Illustrated Songs We Sang with Ms. McAdams 2nd Graders! We focused on AMERICANA songs. I sang at an event last weekend and most the kids I sang with did not know MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE. Such an important song for all of us to know as Americans so we can all sing it TOGETHER! I’m taking it upon myself to make sure our kids know and can sing these songs with groups.

The Illustrated Songs of Wizard of Oz
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2019/10/05/the-illustrated-songs-of-wizard-of-oz/

It was my friend Bart’s birthday.  He ALWAYS remembers my birthday and does something special for it. I very often forget his.  Not because I don’t love him, mind you! It’s a bug in my programming. But I do know that Bart loves Wizard of Oz and I got a helpful reminder for his birthday this year.  So, I sang him IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN.
