    Hello 1st Grade students!
    This is our final week of music! I want you to know how much I've missed seeing your smiling faces every week and hearing you sing! I hope you've enjoyed all of the songs and information I've posted. Today you'll find a speech piece called "Counting-Out Rhyme"! It is spoken instead of sung like rap music! It has a great beat and funny sound effects! It's all about insects except for one! See if you recognize what does not belong in the song! I suggest listening to it first so you can hear it clearly, then you can try it! If you don't recognize some of the insects mention, you can google them at home. Enjoy! Have a safe, great summer! Love, Mrs. G

  • 00:60 Hotaru koi (Come, Firefly)

    Hello 1st Grade Students! This week you'll be listening and learning a song from Japan called "Hotaru Koi" which means Come Firefly in English. Listen to the Japanese words first and the beautiful instruments from Japan called the Shamisen and the Koto. Both of these are string instruments played in Japan. They also use a flute like instrument called the Shakuhachi made out of Bamboo. Bamboo is a common material used to make flutes, etc. It is actually a grass!

    Spotlight on Fireflies

    There are many kinds of “lightning bugs,” as they are sometimes called. Fireflies aren’t flies at all, for flies have one pair of wings. Instead, fireflies are flying beetles, since they have two pairs of wings. Fireflies live mostly where the weather is warm and humid. In the United States, many are found east of the Rocky Mountains. Although fireflies’ glow and flash all day long, they can be seen at night only. Their larvae (eggs) are called “glow worms.” Guess why?

    Lyrics in English
    Come, Firefly (Hotaru Koi)

    Come, Come, Come, firefly.
    That water there is too bitter to drink,
    This water here is much better, I think.
    Come, Come, Come, firefly.

    Firefly Poem
    By Elizabeth Maddox Roberts
    A little light is going by,
    Is going up to see the sky,
    A little light with wings.

    I never could have thought of it,
    To have a little bug all lit
    And made to go on wings.

    We’re Making Popcorn (Speech Piece)

    Refrain
    *We’re making popcorn, pop, pop, pop, pop, popcorn.
    Old . . .... fashioned popcorn!

    Verse 1
    You need oil, corn, and heat, heat, heat.
    You need a pan and the urge to eat, eat, eat. *

    Verse 2
    Put the corn in the oil
    On the stove to get hot.
    Shake the pan so the kernels
    Won’t stick a lot. *

    Verse 3
    With a lid on the pan,
    All the kernels expand.
    See the steam start to grow,
    They have no place to go. *
    *Go back to Refrain and Repeat

  • Louder than a Clap of Thunder2:04 Louder than a Clap of Thunder

    Louder than a Clap of Thunder
    By Jack Prelutsky

    Louder than a clap of thunder,
    Louder than an eagle screams,
    Louder than a dragon blunders,
    Or a dozen football teams,
    Louder than a four-alarmer,
    Or a rushing waterfall,
    Louder than a knight in armor
    Jumping from a ten-foot wall.
    Louder than an earthquake rumbles,
    Louder than a tidal wave,
    Louder than an ogre grumbles
    As he stumbles through his cave,
    Louder than stampeding cattle,
    Louder than a cannon roars,
    Louder than a giant’s rattle,
    That’s how loud my father SNORES!!!!

    Popcorn Popping

    I looked out the window and what did I see?
    Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!
    Spring had brought me such a nice surprise
    Blossoms popping right before my eyes.
    I could take an armful and make a treat,
    A popcorn ball that would smell so sweet.
    It wasn’t really so, but it seemed to be
    Popcorn popping on the apricot tree. (Repeat)
