  • Question from Karen: I would like to adapt happy farmer for our concert. using farm songs ideas as a springboard for our concert.  They will sing a hello song - then would like to utilize happy farmer - have children use text, and somehow use movement?  Can you give me any ideas for sparse movement - 3 - 5 yr olds ? 
    Lynn:  I usually do this with 5-8 year olds.  I do it as a rhythm reading lesson with movement with a partner.  I also do it as an activity with unpitched percussion.  I do think preschoolers could learn the text (page 56 from the Farm Songs and the Sounds of Moosic book) and do simple movements but the dance I do would be quite challenging for most children younger than 5.  Do you have room to do the dance with the 5 year olds and perhaps the younger ones can have movement on specific words, such as arms up like stretching for "Rise, Shine."  Patsch on "get it done".   Maybe a motion like you are running for "lots of work...." &n...  ...  more

  • Hi Lynn,
     
    My kindergarten students are very excited about singing Songs of the Sea for their families.  I have set the program but have a few questions. We are performing Wipeout, We Are Gathered, Here Is a Fishbowl, 10 Fish in the Sea, Fish in the Ocean (with 3 other ocean poems...rondo form), Down By the Bay, and Sandy.
    Our stage space is VERY limited and I will have 3 classes (60 students) performing at a time.  The students have enjoyed playing all the upi and xylophone during class each week and I want every child to play one instrument on program day.  I know 4-8 students will play xylophones for We Are Gathered.  We will use the accopmaniment CD with the other songs.  What instruments have you found work best with the songs I have selected?  ...  more

  • Hi Lynn,
    I'm wondering if you have any suggestions for books to use for toddler and preschool classes, particularly ones that might have a spring, summer, or rain theme. I'm hesitant to use just any story book. I'd rather use ones that have a song related to them or at least sounds or music in some fashion.
     
    Any input is greatly appreciated....  more
