After you feel you know the words well enough, try adding the melody that goes with them and now sing them to your family member!  Upon completion of this task, bring me a note with 'The Colors of the Sea' written on top with your first and last name, classroom teacher's name and the family member's name (mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister, etc.) that you worked on this with! 

     

    "The Colors of the Sea"

    (Verse 1 - 2nd grade ONLY)

    Take a look around you, purple red and white,

    everything so perfect, everything so right.

    In each passing tide, beams a radient hue,

    sparkling rays of sunlight, yellow, green and blue.

     

    (Refrain - ALL - K, 1st, 2nd Grades)

    The colors of the sea, run together so naturally.

    The colors of the sea, show the beauty in you,

    and the beauty in me.

     

    (Verse 2 - 2nd Grade ONLY)

    Look into the ocean, near the sandy shore.

    Like a magic rainbow, differences give us more.

    Painted by the sun, see the water glow.

    Never hide from sunlight, let your colors show.

     

    (Refrain - above - ALL - K, 1st and 2nd Grades!)

     

    (Bridge - 2nd Grade ONLY!)

    No two friends are ever the same.

    Each is special it's true.

    You have something that makes you shine,

    there inside of you, that comes through.

     

    (Refrain - above - ALL - K, 1st, 2nd Grades)

     

    (Coda - ALL - K, 1st, 2nd Grades)

    Shows the beauty in you, and the beauty in me.

    We've been exploring Harmony in class the last two music periods, Ostinato and Round to be specific. Today you will be exploring the next form of Harmony, Partner Song.  A Partner Song is when two totally different songs that have the same musical structure can be sung or played at the same time together.  Essentially, you have two melodies, but when the two songs are performed together at the same time you create Harmony

    Keeping with the season, the partner songs that you will be learning are 'Winter Fantasy' and 'Jingle Bells'.  The lyrics are below.  Learn each lyric enough to sing along with them, first 'Winter Fantasy', then 'Jingle Bells'.  The third time is when the harmony occurs and both songs are sung at once.  Choose which song you would like to sing with then maintain your part, that is the difficult thing!  Good luck!  Upon completion of this task, bring me a note with 'Winter Fantasy' written on top with your first and last name, classroom teacher's nameand the family member's name (mom, dad, grandpa, grandma, brother, sister, etc.) that you sang this for! 

    Winter Fantasy - (Click here to see the video and practice!)

    Snowflakes falling all over town.  Slipping, sliding everybody rushing 'round.

    There's an icy chill in the air, telling us that winter's really here!

    Oh, I'm so glad that winter is here, grab your sled and let out a happy cheer,

    because it's snowing, blowing all through the day,

    winter winds will shurely blow all your cares away!

    Jingle Bells

    Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh.

    O're the fields we go, laughing all the way.

    Bells on bob-tail ring, making spirits bright.

    What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

    Oh what fun it it to ride in a one horse open sleigh.

    Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

    Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh.

     

    5th Grade

    With your 'One City, One Sound' performance coming up this Thursday, December 12th, it is the perfect time to put in a little extra practice time on two of your performance selections, 'Zat You Santa Claus' and 'The Halellujah Chorus'.  Use your practice sheets that I gave you last week that have the choreography ('Zat You...') and the measures you don't sing ('Halellujah Chorus) to help you become more familiar with your songs.  'Zat You Santa Claus?' - Practice the vocals first then try adding the choreography when you are more comfortable.  'Halellujah Chorus' - focus on the piano line that is playing the alto line you are singing.  Make sure to count all your non-singing measures so you'll enter at the right places. After you have practiced BOTH songs, bring me a note with 'One City, One Sound' written on top, your first and last name, your classroom teacher's name and the name of parent, grandparent that observed you do the practice.
