Another song written together with a class of Grade 1 children (aged 6-7). I have been enjoying bringing my music classes into FAWM: having them listen/comment on songs, and having them start writing songs.
I Have a Ukulele
Mr. McGaughey and Mrs. P's Grade 1 class. Thursday Feb. 7-Wed Feb 27.
I have a ukulele, I always keep it near
And when I start to play it The kids burst into cheers
We sing and sing some more and play our song daily
The kids all sing and dance when I play my ukulele.
I have a blue guitar, it’s hard to keep in tune,
But when I start to play, it gets quiet in the room.
Then we start another song and we begin to dance
We all sing along and clap our hands.
(Name) brings a xylophone, and (Name) brings a drum
(Name) calls all the other children to come.
Before you know what happened, we’ve started a band
It’s fun to make music with kids across the land
