Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Archive for the ‘SPB List for Special Occasion’ Category

Wowee the snow days and delays in Northern VA have really cramped our style this winter.  My heart aches with each cancellation.  But when we get together, we have lots of wonderful songs to sing and lots of love to share.  These are the songs we sang in the classes of Ms. Campbell (K), Ms. Everett (K), Mr. Koppelman (2), Mr. Grasso (3), Ms. Trojan (1), Ms. Slovensky (1), Ms. Howard (2), Ms. Allen (2), Ms. Coffman (2), Ms. Strickland (2), Mr. Mitchell (K), Ms. Resutek (1), Ms. Hissong (1), Ms. George (1), Ms. Sackett/Ms. Altervater (1) at Tuckahoe Elementary, Carlin Springs Elementary and Timber Lane Elementary schools.

It is always soooooooooooooooooooo exciting to introduce new repertoire to Sing Books visits.  This week I got to add The Backwards Birthday Party (Music and Lyrics by Tom Chapin and John Forster), singing with an amazing instrumental track created by the absolutely marvelous Paul Raiman of My Rehearsal Pianist.

REQUESTS FOR THIS WEEK
Stars indicate number of requests (in random order)

I got an ANTI request this week.  Someone specifically asked me NOT to bring LATE FOR SCHOOL since we sing it so often.  It is almost always requested in every class for the next visit whether we sing it in a class or not, but the “please don’t bring it” request made me chuckle.  I love that song, too, but I think it is probably good to take a little LATE FOR SCHOOL vacation.  I’ll honor the Anti-Request!

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

IMG_0502

It is so fun to walk into a class and see that Sing Books is announced as one of the day’s events.  Warms my heart, makes me smile and wast to burst out singing!!  Many thanks to Ms. Atlvater who is standing in for Ms. Sackett while she’s away.

I have a dream to create a Nursery Rhyme/Mother Goose Sing Along Database.  There are countless Nursery Rhyme/Mother Goose compilations, most illustrated and many with printed musical melodies. And, one can find many sources for the history of these words and tunes.  Many of these tunes are ancient, lovely, engaging and useful.  For example, the tunes can be used to create new songs.

I’ve found it impossible to find beautiful, authentic sing-along instrumentals.

It is amazing that to search for “nursery rhyme, authentic instrumental,” produces nothing good or useful from Google or Amazon.

The instrumental/karaoke sing-alongs available online are just awful.  The digitally produced music with fake sounding drum beats and goofy add-ins or sprays of digital sounding fake angel tones make me want to get sick.  There are some wonderful examples of folks singing and performing selected nursery rhymes for the listener, but none that are instrumental so a child, parent or caregiver can sing-along solo.

One of the children’s performers who gets it right is Raffi.  Raffi never sings down to the children.  He uses real instruments for accompaniment and his arrangements are always beautifully and authentically created.

This is the sort of thing needed for nursery rhymes.  The world needs a database of sing-along accompaniments (maybe even in various keys) played on real instruments and using beautiful and authentic arrangements for each nursery rhyme.

USEFUL TUNES IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN

I was visiting Tuckahoe yesterday and a group of Kindergartners were all wearing their field trip T-shirts.  They were going to a nearby planetarium to learn about the stars.

This made me think of the songs in the Sing Books collection.

This is a list of songs that celebrate the stars.

RHODE ISLAND IS FAMOUS FOR YOU, AN ILLUSTRATED SONG
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/08/26/rhode-island-is-famous-for-you-a-singable-picture-book/

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

Children are frequently smitten with the song, Rhode Island is Famous for You.  Occasionally children will come up with ideas for products from other states not currently mentioned in the song.  This week, though, in a couple of classes, children came up to me with many ideas!  I told the kids that if they submitted their ideas to me in writing (though I’ll write the ideas down for Kindergarteners!), I would begin making new pages with the kid-written lyrics.  There’ll be some subjectivity on my part, choosing the ones to find pictures for and print.  But I surely give many kudos to every kid with chutzpah and creativity enough to come up with and idea and turn it in!

Requests for Next Visit

I keep a Sing Books notebook to jot down the songs we sing in each visit and also to write in requests children make.  They are always so sweet asking for particular songs, like asking Santa for a gift they’d like for Christmas.  I am going to try and remember to publish kids’ requests in these THE SONGS WE SANG posts, since the requests make interesting/useful lists. Each list of requests gives great information, indicating what the kids respond to most.  It’s nice to know what songs one can turn to for an extra boost of engagement or as a reward for their attention to an enriching song, but one that might not have gotten their toes a-tappin’ quite like their favorites.  If you start looking here, you’ll notice that some songs, like Take Me Home, Country RoadsPuff the Magic Dragon, and Late for School, will show up over and over.

These are the songs the children asked for this week (which I will bring with me when I visit this set of classes in 2 week’s time),
