The Songs We Sang 9/22 – 10/2, 2015

Posted on: October 12, 2015

Wowee, it’s great to be back in the swing of things, enjoying marvelous illustrated songs with my friends at Tuckahoe Elementary, Carlin Springs Elementary and Timber Lane Elementary schools, visiting the classes of (teachers randomly listed) Ms. George (1), Ms. Eib (1), Ms. Trojan (1), Ms. Resutek (1), Mr. Mitchell (K), Ms. Lechleitner (K), Ms. Everett (K), Ms. Campbell (K), Ms. Mason (K), Mr. Grasso (3), Ms. DiNardo (3), Ms. Bishop (K), Ms. Morgan (K, and her sub Ms. B), Miss Robin (Pre-K), Mr. Koppelman (2), Ms. Dolinsky (2), Ms. Antognoli (2), Ms. Sackett (1), Ms. Howard (2), Ms. Sill (2), Ms. Coffman (3), Ms. Strickland (3).

It was fun to sing songs and play some fun instruments this week, including guitar, limberjack horse, limberjack frog, kazoo, train whistle and colored bells in key of C diatonic scale.

From Tomorrow to Don’t Laugh at Me, and Octopus’s Garden to Shakespeare’s Winter Song, these two weeks had it all.

This round, songs are listed in alpha order (or almost).

Funny Comments

A child came up to me after a Sing Books visit with the Mr. K & Ms. Dolinsky group and said, “I have a hint!  Don’t sing There’s a Train Out for Dreamland before kids go to lunch or they’ll want to eat their dessert first!”
