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:

Addendum, 7/6/2015

It’s a simple fact that seemingly simple Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes have a lot to offer.  I’m embracing these little songs this summer and creating books for individual rhymes, so as to sing them as individual songs.

Here’s one for HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE

hey diddle (nosy crow) cover
Hey Diddle Diddle
Traditional Words and Tune
Illustrated by Yu-Hsuan Huang
Published by Nosy Crow “Sing along with me!” Series

This version of HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE was purchased with a kind 2017/2018 school year Teacher’s Grant from the Tuckahoe Elementary School PTA, put in for Sing Books with Emily by the Kindergarten Team. I’m so grateful!  Nosy Crow’s rendition of HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE is really cute.  For one thing, I appreciate when the characters are animals.  This allows all kids to identify with all the characters without having to encounter the barriers and feelings associated with racial and cultural identities. This Nosy Crow board book also features engaging moving parts (like a wheel you can turn to make the cow jump over the moon which also makes the carousel spin.

Nosy Crow’s webpage for this book has an embedded sing along player:
https://player.fm/series/nosy-crow-stories-aloud/sing-along-with-me-hey-diddle-diddle

 

HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE, as a rhyme, has been in my repertoire for some time, but it is always good for children to see rhymes represented different ways.  I’m making a conscious effort to include more rhymes in my visits with kids PreK and Kindergarten. Many studies have shown that children come to Kindergarten knowing a number of nursery rhymes by heart significantly increases the ease with which that child learns to read. And the effects continue even to more advanced elementary grades. Singing rhymes might seem like a silly, even expendable activity, but the effects it has on forming the brain of an emergent reader are profound.  Knowing rhythms tunes the ears for sounds and language.  And knowing a rhyme by heart helps a kid to start recognizing words in print that they already know in their heads.  And then young brains can use that skill to start making other connections.

This mission to include more rhymes in my repertoire is even more profound after talking to many PreK and K teachers who say that few children come to school knowing rhymes any more. This is a gap that I can help fill.  I also sing frequently at libraries and community events.  I will certainly work to share with parents and caregivers how fun and easy it is to sing these kinds of rhymes with their young ones.  One of my goals is to performs programs for people who don’t feel confident singing rhymes with their children (maybe they don’t have books or they don’t know the words or the tunes) and teach them and give them the resources to do that.  Along these lines, I’ve already begun my SING BOOKS WITH EMILY SONGBOOK SERIES. This is a series of printable song sheets linked to posts with everything I can find to help folks know about and sing the rhymes (including Sing Books with Emily embedded scratch vocal sing along SoundCloud players).

RHODE ISLAND IS FAMOUS FOR YOU

This week, Ms. Howard’s class submitted some nice ideas for new RHODE ISLAND verses

  • Lice comes from A-lice-ka (John Paul)
  • Pie comes from O-pie-O (John Paul)
  • Mangos come from Mangolia (this would be for the international version, by Amy and Heather)
  • Ohio is famous for bukeyes (Madeline)

For the full post of the ideas submitted by kids, click here:

ELETELPHONY
Laura Elizabeth Richards

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—
No! No! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I’ve got it right.)
Howe’er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I’d better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)

Musical Settings

Free score of a musical setting by Gary Bachland:

A musical setting by Kindermusic, has goofy arrangement and recording, but I think if simplified, it could be sweet and useful tune:
