THIS POST IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The school year is winding down and the children have grown so much over the year, ready now to rise to the next grade level.  Singing to Ms. Coffman and Ms. Strickland’s group on 6/5, I had my first in the parade of “last visit of this year” Sing Books performances.  All the visits from 6/9 – 6/12 were last visits with those groups and if any were 3rd graders, my last visit with them ever, children with whom I’ve shared Sing Books over 4 years from Kindergarten through 3rd grade.  I will miss these children.  I hope with all my heart they will carry the songs (and all the wonderful things associated with music and song, like language, art appreciation, beauty, joy) with them through life, and eventually pass the music along.

I visited with the classes of Mr. Mitchell (K), Ms. Sackett (1), Miss Robin (Pre-K), Ms. Anctil (K), Ms. Coffman (3), Ms. Strickland (3), Ms. Morgan (K), Ms. Harris (K), Ms. Allen (2), Ms. Howard (2), Ms. Campbell (K), Ms. Everett (K), Mr. Grasso (3), Mr. Koppelman (2), and Ms. Mason (K) at Carlin Springs Elementary, Tuckahoe Elementary, and Ashlawn Elementary schools.

Just a little note on song order in these posts.  Sometimes I post them alphabetically (ascending or even descending order) and sometimes just at random.  I like to do it this way since the different orders give me new perspectives on the list.  Some of my THE SONGS WE SANG lists included many of the same songs, but the order in which you view or sing things changes the flavors, meaning and understanding.  This is often how I conduct the performances.  They are seemingly free form.  I will fill the bag with songs that seem right for the group and the season and with the songs that the children in this group had requested from the previous visit.  But the songs we sing and in what order depend on a lot of factors including, things the kids ask for, priorities in terms of “we have to sing this today or never” if it is a holiday or for a curriculum enrichment, or just what feels right at the time.

In each visit over the last 2 weeks, we sang a selection of songs from the following list (randomly posted),

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

How does music get made?  I make music every day and the subject still mystifies me.  Though I mostly make music by performing it, over time, a few tunes have come to my head.  Having not been much educated in musical notation or composition, I’ve written them down as best I can.

The process is fun, though.

First draft with tune only, no rhythms or musical markings yet.  There will be a fermata and rit. at the end, and some kind of ending:

My Woodland Wish
Words by Kate Endle and Caspar Babypants
Music by Caspar Babypants (Chris Ballew)
Illustrations by Kate Endle

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

Once I learn and get music made to sing this song, it would be fun to find finger puppets or simple costume items (or maybe just let the kids improvise) and let children in the classes play the parts of the animals to whom the song narrator sings.  Kids PreK-1 would have such fun slithering like a snake, staring like an owl or prowling like a raccoon.

It also would be fun to make up arm movements to represent each animal so that all kids in a visit could act along while we sing.
