     Welcome Message: 
     3/25/2020             Soon I will be providing you with ways you can continue your grade level music activities at home.
                                 Until then, think about new or improved Spotlights that you can work on. Remember the Balloons hanging over the music room door.
                                 Maybe you could try to learn a Spotlight for each balloon?!?
                                 They include:
                                 Sing a Song
                                 Do a dance
                                 Play an instrument
                                 Tell a joke
                                 Do a skit or a puppet show
                                 Do a magic trick
                                 Do a musical show and tell
                                 Write and/or read a poem
                                 Practice, Practice, Practice and have fun!!!          
    3/19/2020             Happy 1st Day of Spring!
                                       Lots going on on the farm.
                                       You are invited to check out "AllieDeeFarm" on Facebook.
                                       I hope to show you what's happening on the farm monday thru friday. On Saturday and Sunday you can play a game I call "What's This". You can try to identify an
                                       antique utensil or tool.
                                       Maybe you'll get some ideas how you can explore your own environment for fun things to do.
     3/17/2020.                  Happy St. Patrick's Day !
                                      If we were in school today we would be celebrating with these songs. You can find them on utube with your families' permission.
                          "Follow the Rainbow", Sara Womack (lyrics) We usually add the signs and the key-note and chords.
                                       [Dm 4       C 4       Dm 4     C 2   Dm 2]                  If you can find these letters on any instrument you have at home, you should be able to play along.
                         Of course, we would be singing and signing to "The Unicorn Song" by The Irish Rovers, Lyrics.
                         Remember how we found the happy enging to "The Unicorn Song", also by the Irish Rovers. It's called " The Continuing Story of the Unicorn".
                         I haven't found the written lyrics of the new version. Maybe I'll work on that today.
                         Hope you learn a new song today, too!
                 3/16/2020                   Welcome to our new adventure in learning!!!!
               We have a wonderful opportunity to change our normal routine, and become independent learners.
                We can take this time to learn new songs to sing, play new songs on instruments we have at home,
                and read books about music, nature or ANYTHING WE WANT!
               I will use this web page as a way to communicate with you and you can talk to me by emailing me:
               My plan is to speak to you about music on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
               On Tuesday and Thursday, I will share "The AllieDee Farm Report". This will include the spring happenings at 
               the farm. 
                I hope to use this time to learn new music and to be able to use technology to share it with you.
                Remember to sing a song, play a tune and read EVERYDAY!
                See you soon, FROGS .
