Songs for the First Grade Music Performance

​Hello!  As you know, your children have been preparing for their upcoming 1st Grade Concert.  In the letter that was sent home, I stated that I would be posting the words to the music here on my blog.  Now that I have had the chance to see all of my classes, all of the students have been exposed to the music.  You can work with your child and they should be able to sing through the music with you.  Here are the songs and lyrics!

 

Hello Song
Hello!  Hello! And, how are you today?
Hello!  Hello! I’m glad you came our way!
Hello!  Hello! I hope you’re here to stay!
It’s friends like you that make my day!  HELLO!
 
America
My country ‘tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the Pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountain side
Let freedom ring!
 
Grand Old Flag
You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you way.
You’re the emblem of the land I love
The home of the free and the brave.
Every heart beats true with the red, white, and blue.
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Waltzing Matilda
Verse 1
Once a jolly swagman
Camped by a billabong
Under the shade of a Koolabaugh tree
And he sang as he watched
And waited ‘til his billy boiled
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me
 
Chorus
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he watched
And waited ‘til his billy boiled
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me
 
Verse 2
Down came a jumbuck
To drink at the billabong
Up jumped the swagman
And grabbed it with glee
And he sang as he shoved that
Jumbuck in his tucker bag
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me
 
Chorus
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
And he sang as he shoved that
Jumbuck in his tucker bag
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me

You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands

The Little White Duck
There's a little white duck (quack)
Sitting in the water
A little white duck (quack)
Doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad
Flapped his wings and he said “I'm glad!”
I'm a little white duck
Sitting in the water
Quack! Quack! Quack!

 

There's a little green frog (ribbit)
Sitting in the water
A little green frog (ribbit)
Doing what he oughter
He jumped right off of the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said “I'm Glad!”
I'm a little green frog
Sitting in the water
Glump! Glump! Glump!
 

There's a little black bug (chirp)
Floating in the water
A little black bug (chirp)
Doing what he oughter
He tickled the frog on the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said “I'm Glad!”
I'm a little black bug
Floating in the water
Chirp! Chirp! Chirp!
 
Goodbye Song
Goodbye! Goodbye! To you and all our friends.
Goodbye! Goodbye! Our time's come to an end.
Goodbye! Goodbye! For just a while and then.
Another day we'll meet again!  GOODBYE!!!!

More Songs to Practice!

​Here are some more songs to practice for the concert!  Good luck!

 

You’re a Grand Old Flag
 
You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave
You’re the emblem of the land I love
The home of the free and the brave
Every heart beats true ‘neath the red, white, and blue
Where there’s never a boast or brag
But should auld acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag!
 
Be Kind to Your Fine Feathered Friends
 
Be kind to your fine feathered friends
For a duck may be somebodies mother
They live in the bottom of the swamp
Where the weather is cold and damp
You may think that this is the end
WELL IT IS!

Silly Chicken
 
Oh, I had a silly chicken, and he wouldn’t lay an egg
So I poured hot water up and down his leg
And he giggled and he giggled and he giggled all the day
And my poor little chicken laid a hardboiled egg!
 
Oh, I had a silly chicken, he went scratching in the dirt
And he scratched so had that his feet, they hurt
So he bandaged them way up, from his thigh bone to his toe
And you should have seen my chicken do the Do-Si-Do!
 
Oh, I had a silly chicken, and he wouldn’t lay an egg
So I poured hot water up and down his leg
And he sang a silly song, which turned out to be a ballad
And my chicken laid a sandwich full of egg and tuna salad!

First Grade Music Performance

Dear Kindergarten Parents and Families,
                The Uniontown Elementary School First Grade Classes would like to invite you to their 2014 musical performance entitled “A Day on the Farm”!  Two performances will be held on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm in the Uniontown Elementary gymnasium.  Parents and families are welcome to come and enjoy the students’ music concert.
                Due to the large number of first graders, there will be two separate performances.  Students in Mrs. Grimm’s, Mrs. Schumaker’s, and Mrs. Quior’s classes will need to report to their classrooms between 6:00 and 6:15 pm and will perform at 6:30 pm.  Students in Mrs. Massa’s and Mrs. Riggs’ classes will need to report to their classrooms between 7:10 and 7:15 pm and will perform at 7:30 pm.  The concerts will last about 30 minutes each.  When coming to the second performance, please do not arrive too early so that the families of the first performance can exit the parking lot and create spaces.  All students are expected to perform.
                Students are expected to wear “farmer” clothing.  This may include bandanas, farmer hats, gardener gloves, overalls, and other assorted attire.  Many of the students have asked to dress up as well as wear farmer accessories.  Please use your discretion on deciding what your child is to wear, however, do not have your child wear sweat pants/shirts, ripped up jeans, or play clothes.  We have talked about proper clothing choices in class and many of the students have shared what they would like to wear.  Please do not feel that you need to buy a new outfit for your child.  If your child has outgrown their dress shoes, have them wear their nicest pair of tennis shoes.  Please have the girls refrain from wearing heals or clunky boots, since they will be climbing up and standing on risers.  We want the students to be as safe and comfortable as possible.
                Due to all of the calamity days, the students have missed some of their music classes.  I have posted the words of each song on my blog.  This does not include the actual music, but the students will know the melodies.  You can check out my blog on the Lake Local Schools website (lakelocal.org).  Click on Uniontown Elementary, UE Teacher Pages, and then click on Mrs. Bishop’s Blog.  This will be very helpful in the memorizing of the songs.  Your help is appreciated.
                If your child is not able to attend, please let me know.  My email address is bishopheather@lakelocal.org or you can call 330.877.4298.  Also, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  I am in the building from 8:15 am -12:00 pm, but I do check my email at home.  I am looking forward to the performance and I can’t wait to see you there!
                                                                                                                                Musically Yours,
                                                                                                                                Heather Bishop

Kindergarten Concert Song Lyrics

Here are some of the songs that the kindergarteners will be singing in the concert.  They already know these songs, but may be a little rusty, due to all of the snow days.  I will add more as the students learn them.  Please take some time to help your children prepare for their concert.  Practice makes perfect!!!

 

 

Songs for the Kindergarten Concert

 


 

"The Dinosaur Party"

 

(Verse 1 - Spoken)
I took a trip in my time machine,
And went back to a land unseen.
The di-no-saurs were before my eyes,
And what I saw was a real sur-prise.
(Chorus - Sing)
They did the Bron-to-sau-rus Boogie,
And the Ste-go-sau-rus Stomp,
The Al-lo-sau-rus Wiggle,
And Ty-ran-no-sau-rus Romp.
(Verse 2 – Spoken)
Heads did bob and tails did shake,
It felt just like a big earthquake.
They asked me to join in the fun,
And so we danced till day was done.

 

(Repeat Chorus)
 
 
"Here Comes Mrs. Macaroni"
 
Here comes Mrs. Macaroni
Riding on her snow white pony
In the land of glory, glory
This is (name of teacher)’s dancing day
(Example: Mrs. Welty)
W, W, W for Welty
W, W, W for Welty
W, W, W for Welty
This is Mrs. Welty’s dancing day

 

"Elephant Song"

 

One el-e-phant went out to play
On a spi-der’s web one day
He had such e-nor-mous fun
That he asked a-no-ther el-e-phant to come
(Repeat three times, adding “two”, “three”, and “many” in the place of “one”)
 
 
"Cobbler, Cobbler"

 

Cob-bler, Cob-bler, mend my shoe,
Have it done by half past two;
Half past two is much too late,
Have it done by half past eight.
Cob-bler, Cob-bler, mend my shoe.
Yes, good doctor, that I’ll do.
Stitch it up and stitch it down,
I will charge you one half crown.

 

"America"
 
My country ‘tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the Pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountain side
Let freedom ring!
 
 
"There's No One Exactly Like Me"
 
Look all the world over, there's no one like me
No one like me, No one like me
Look all the world over, there's no one like me
There's no one exactly like me!
Look all the world over, there's no one like you
No one like you, No one like you
Look all the world over, there's no one like you
There's no one exactly like you!

 

"Hello Song"

Hello, Hello, and how are you today

Hello, Hello, I'm glad you came our way

Hello, Hello, I hope you're here to stay

It's friends like you that make our day

HELLO!

Dear Kindergarten Parents and Families,
The Uniontown Elementary School Kindergarten Classes would like to invite you to their first musical performance! Two performances will be held on Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 6:00 pm and 7:15 pm in the Uniontown Elementary gymnasium. Parents and families are welcome to come and enjoy the students’ first music concert.
Due to the large number of kindergarteners, there will be two separate performances. Students in Mrs. Bussey’s, Mrs. Welty’s, and Mrs. Mengeu’s classes will need to report to the gymnasium at 5:30 pm and will perform at 6:00 pm. Students in Mrs. Zelenko’s and Ms. Stair’s classes will need to report to the gymnasium at 6:45 pm and will perform at 7:15 pm. The concerts will last about 30 minutes each. When coming to the second performance, please do not arrive too early so that the families of the first performance can exit the parking lot and create spaces. All students are expected to perform.
Students are expected to wear dressy clothing. Please use your discretion on deciding what your child is to wear, however, do not have your child wear sweat pants/shirts, ripped up jeans, or play clothes. We have talked about proper clothing choices in class and many of the students have shared what they would like to wear. Please do not feel that you need to buy a new outfit for your child.

Please have the girls refrain from wearing heals or clunky boots, since they will be climbing up and standing on risers. We want the students to be as safe and comfortable as possible.
Some students will be selected to say a word or phrase in the performance. When these students are chosen, a notice will be sent home with their part. The parts will be chosen randomly (picking names from a jar) and an equal amount of student will be chosen from each class. Not every student will be chosen. There will be about 10 -15 students chosen from each class.
Due to all of the calamity days, the students have missed some of their music classes. I have posted the words of each song on my blog. This does not include the actual music, but the students will know the melodies. You can check out my blog on the Lake Local Schools website (lakelocal.org).

Parent Music Survey

Parent Music Survey
In the last week of September, I gave a survey to your children about music inside and outside of music class.  I received some great information and have integrated the data into my lesson plans.  Now it is your turn!  I would like you to please go to the music blog and look for the link to the music survey: http://survey.lakelocal.org/fillsurvey.php?sid=424.  Before taking the survey, please ask your children a few questions.  What is your favorite song from music class?  Can you sing it to me?  What are some of the things you have learned in music class?  What is your favorite instrument?  Your input is very valuable and will help me to serve you and your children in the best way possible.  I do appreciate your time!
