Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Archive for May 2017

This post is for Sing Books with Emily Songbook Series Little Songs Volume 1 at Burke Library in Alexandria, VA on 5/30/2017

Sing Books with Emily Songbook Series: Learn songs, make a family songbook, sing with kids.

I was delighted to visit the  Ellen Coolidge Burke Branch Library in Alexandria, VA for a Sing Books with Emily Songbook session on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, 11-11:30am.

Most of time I do most of the singing at Sing Books gatherings.  But part of my mission with Sing Books with Emily is to encourage folks (parents, extended family, caregivers, community members, educators) to learn songs themselves and SING with children.  Doing this nurtures so many benefits, including:

  • cultural enrichment
  • sharing of knowledge
  • emergent reading
  • sharing of values
  • emotional communication and maturity
  • LOVE
  • empathy
  • FUN!

To further this mission, I conduct Sing Books with Emily Songbook visits, including the one at the Burke Library on 5/30/2017.

The Songbook visits go like this:

  • Guests gather the song pages that have the song lyrics on them.  These sheets are made like coloring pages so the kids can color and decorate them.  If anyone is interested in song sheets that also have guitar chords, you will find those below.
  • First, I explain that these songs are meant to be easy to sing.  Many of the songs will probably have familiar tunes.  If not, guests can reference this post for sound players to remember the tunes or use the sound players for singing along whenever they choose.
  • Then, we start singing the songs! One at a time, I sing the song then invite friends to sing with me.  We sing each song a couple of times to help guest become familiar with the tunes then move on to the next one.
  • Guests can keep their sheets (stapled together into a booklet or put into sheet protectors and binders or prong folders, there are many ways to make a book!).  Keeping and decorating the booklet will help you create a family song book.
  • Remember: kids can decorate the pages and enjoy singing these songs with family and friends.

THE SONGS

There are many resources for each song below.  Each title is linked to a post about that song (which includes things like song history, videos, sound players).  The link after the text that says, “To view or print this card, click here:” will take you to a printable PDF of that songs sheet.  There is a song sheet with guitar chords and a song sheet with just lyrics for most songs.  Most songs also have embedded sound players that you can use to sing or learn the songs.  Once you have learned the tunes, please feel free to sing the songs a capella and in any key that best suits your voice.

Have fun!

That cute little song that characters sing on the Big Bang Theory wasn’t just made up for the show.  You can sing it, too.

I figured out some easy guitar chords so you can accompany yourself and sing it.  And, as you can see in the video, it makes an adorable round!

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

Edith Newlin called her song, “Warm Kitty.”  But I’m going to call it, “Soft Kitty,” since that’s what they sing on Big Bang.

My chords sing the song in the Key of C (not the same key that they are using for the song above).

The first note you sing is a G.

SOFT KITTY
Song by Edith Newlin
From: Songs for the Nursery School
Adapted from English Folk-Tune
Chords by ELEG for SBWE

C                 G7
Soft kitty, warm kitty

C                     G
Little ball of fur

C                     G7
Sleepy kitty, happy kitty

C          G7       C
Purr!  Purr!  Purr!

NOTES ON VISITS

In most visits, I brought along my guitar and fun instruments like jingle bells, limberjacks, kazoos, and train whistles.

I developed a big canvas sack full of homemade books for little songs and Mother Goose nursery rhymes.  Some of the rhymes I made myself and then wrote tunes and chords to go with them.  For others, I figured out chords for traditional tunes.  The kids love the chance to take turns and pick books from the bag.  They close their eyes and pull out a song and then we sing the surprise.

The published books are all in big canvas bags, too.  Sometimes, I pick out songs for the group and sometimes kids come up and choose a song at random.

It’s fun for everyone and keeps me on my toes, too!

I was perusing my EASY guitar repertoire for songs about birds and ran across THERE WAS AN OLD MAN WITH A BEARD.  I’ve long thought this was a funny song and have fallen in love with some illustrators’ rendering of Edward Lear’s limerick.  Having assembled a few sing-along lyric sheets, I’ve always sung it for kids a capella.  This time, with the tune ringing in my ears, it seemed I might be able to play it on my guitar.  Sure enough, I tinkered with some chords from my not-so-long menu of beginner ones (but sufficient enough to play a whole lot of songs) to find that some of them fit the bill.  And then I found some images and made a collage for the illustration.
