I can smell the turkey now!
I started teaching Thanksgiving music today for one of the ECC school’s Thanksgiving celebrations. I am teaching Debbie Friedman’s “Happy Thanksgiving.” The kids were adorable with it, especially with the hand motions! The 2’s will just learn the chorus, the 3s and 4s already started learning the lyrics. They just love the chorus! Another song they are learning is Hodu l’Adonai (Thank you God) by Carol Boyd Leon, just 2 of the verses. Some of the words repeat in the verses, so they will be OK. These two pieces will be the finale and each class will be doing doing songs/poems.
Tomorrow 2 of the 3 schools I will be working we will be picking out Chanukah music for school shows, performances at assistant living facilities, outdoor candle lighting ceremonies, etc. I found a few songs I never taught before, so that will definitely be good.
Contact me if you need music or want to share! 🙂
Now I will smell turkey and latkes! Can’t wait!
