Assignment #2  
What is your “Go To” song when you want to feel good?

Something really special about music is that it can bring you joy – especially in hard times.  I thought it would be fun to create a “Feel Good Playlist” of songs that are uplifting – songs that inspire happiness and hope!

  1.  First check out one of Mrs. Hayes’ favorite uplifting songs below as an example: “It’s Gonna Be Okay” by The Piano Guys.  Or Mrs. Troxel’s go to happy song: “I’m On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons. Or even Mr. Kamp’s favorite song from Frozen 2 - it always puts a smile on his face, and as we navigate through online learning we are “Lost in the Woods.”  The videos are attached below.

  2. Find one song that makes you happy.  Share the song’s title and artist with a family member or friend.  Listen to your song and reflect in a few sentences about why you think this song could bring others happiness and hope.

  3. Interview an adult! (either someone where you live or on the phone) about one song that makes them happy!  Ask them for the title, artist and why the song makes they feel good. Listen to their song and write about why it makes them happy and what you find uplifting about it too.

  4. Share both song titles, artists and your short reflections with your family.  Share with your music teacher if you have a computer! Include links to songs if you can.  We can put together a list of feel good songs to share for all to enjoy! Have fun!Music notes

Miss you all tremendously!  Have fun with this.  Two fun assignments!     Turn in pages 3 & 4 on April 6.  Email assignment #2 after recording.  Mrs. Hayes

Assignment 1.  First 3 pages.  Count the 2/4 rhythms out loud while keeping a beat on your lap saying Du and DuDe.  If you need help, go to the next sheet with the rhythm syllables written in.

Choose a song that you like or even music from a video game.  Play the music and keep a beat on your lap and say the rhythms.
Pattern set


Try saying the rhythms of the sheet long with the music.  Mix up the rhythms, like start with the last line and go backwards.  Do it for someone in your family.



Sing the song Bessie Bell and Mary Gray, following the words and rhythms.  Now sing it with the DuDe and Du rhythms instead of the words and keep a beat on your lap. 

Ask an adult to play with you the stop and go thinking in your head game.  Start singing the song.  When the adult puts their hand up, stop singing and keep thinking/singing the song.  When they put their hand down sing out loud where your thinking was.  Have the adult sing a song they know and you start and stop them.  See how they do!

Bessy Bell


Follow the directions for the rhythm sheet.  You will draw either quarter notes (Du) or eighth notes (DuDe).  Try to draw them better than Mrs. Hayes could using her computer pen

  2/3 Lyrics for LINCS Fine Arts Night Concert

Loch Lomond (Scottish)

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae

On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.


O ye'll take the high road and I'll take the low road
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

‘Twas there that we parted on yon shady glen
On the steep, steep side o' Ben Lomond
Where in purple hue, the Highland hills we view
And the moon coming out in the gloamin'.


I Love the Mountains (Sung in a round)

I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills,

I love the flowers, I love the daffodils.

I love the fireside, when the lights are low.

Boom-dee-a-da, Boom-dee-a-da, Boom-dee-a-da, Boom-dee-a-da.


Woody Guthrie Song Medley (Woody Guthrie, USA)

Bling Blang Hammer with My Hammer

You get a hammer and I'll get a nail
And you catch a bird and I'll catch a snail
You bring a board and I'll bring a saw
And we'll build a house for the baby-o

Bling, Blang, hammer with my hammer
Zingo, Zango, cutting with my saw
Bling, Blang, hammer with my hammer
Zingo, Zango, cutting with my saw

I'll grab some mud and you grab some clay
So when it rains it won't wash away,

We'll build a house that'll be so strong
The winds will sing my baby a song


This Land is Your Land

This land is your land, this land is my land
From the California to the New York island
From the Redwood Forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me


As I went walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for you and me


I roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me , a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me


Uno, Dos y Tres (Mexico)

Uno, dos y tres, Quatro, cinco, seis

Siete, ocho nueve, Yo puedo contar a diez.


La la la la la …..


Tengo un sombrero, I have a little hat

Tengo un sarape, what do you think of that.  La La….


Adios amigos, adios my friends,

Hasta la vista, until we meet again.  La La….


Bessie Bell and Mary Gray (Irish)/The Turkey Song (WI)

Bessie Bell and Mary Gray, they were two bonnie lasses

They built their house upon a lea and covered it with rushes.


Bessy kept the garden gate while Mary kept the pantry.

Bessy always had to wait while Mary she had plenty.


As I came over yonder hill, I spied a mighty turkey.

He flapped his wings and he spread his tail, and his feet looked awful dirty.

Fow link-a-tidy, Fow-da-link a-tidy-o

Fow link-a-tidy, And his feet looked awful dirty.

Shoheen Sho (Irish)

Shoheen sho baby boy, Father’s pride, Mother’s joy.

Birdie sleeps in the nest, Sun doth sink in the west.


Frere Jacques (France)

Frère Jacques, Frère JacquesDormez-vous?, Dormez-vous?

Sonnez les matines, Sonnez les matines
Ding, ding, dong, Ding, ding, dong.
