How to Make an Origami Puppet (Bird Beak)

You can male two “Bird Beaks” and hold them in each hand while you sing Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds. You are one of the birds and the two puppets make three.

Watch this video and see if you can follow the steps and make your own Bird Beak. Origami can sometimes be challenging, so please ask an adult for help if you run into problems.

After you make your two birds, record a video of you sing Three Little Birds in Seesaw.

Here’s the link to the song:

West African Polyrhythms

Try playing these rhythms by clapping your hands or with anything that makes a sound by tapping, shaking, etc.

Teach a friend the rhythm you learned to play and then learn to play a different rhythm that you can play with your friend. Record the two different rhythms together in Seesaw.

You may do this and/or sing with Dideo with the video that’s in your Seesaw lesson.

De Colores Video with Lyrics

De Colores (accompaniment)

De colores,
De colores se visten los campos en la primavera.
De colores,
De colores son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera.
De colores,
De colores es el arco iris que vemos lucir.
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores
Me gustan a mi.

Canta el gallo,
Canta el gallo con el quiri, quiri, quiri, quiri, qui,
La gallina,
La gallina con el cara, cara, cara, cara, cara,
Los polluelos,
Los polluelos con el pio, pi­o, pio, pio, pi.
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores
Me gustan a mi­.

De Colores Read/Sing-a-Long Book

In Colors

In colors,

In colors the fields are dressed

In the springtime

In colors,

Colorful are the little birds

That come from far away1

In colors,

Colorful is the rainbow

That we see shine

And that is why the great loves

of many colors are pleasing to me (3Xs)

Sings the rooster,

Sings the rooster with the

Cock-a-doodle-do, cock-a-doodle do…

The hen,

The hen with the

Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck…

The baby chicks,

The baby chicks with the

Peep, peep, peep, peep…

And that is why the great loves

of many colors are pleasing to me (3Xs)

Multicultural Festival – Fifth Grade – African American

Lift Every Voice and Sing

Accompaniment

James Weldon JohnsonJ. Rosamond Johnson

Lift ev’ry voice and sing
‘Til earth and heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list’ning skies
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on ’til victory is won

Melody (Sruti)

Raag Yama

piano-keyboard-diagram

Let’s explore creating our own melodies, using an Indian raga, called Yaman.  Many of the students at Forest Park seem to have access to piano keyboards at home.  Use this diagram to help you find the notes “F” and “C.”  Play them over and over again with your left hand while you play Yaman by playing only the white piano keys with your right hand.  Remember that F and C are you most restful notes while E and B express the most tension because they want to go to F and C.

If you don’t have a keyboard, use the sound file below as your drone and improvise melodies to it using the keyboard at this link: https://www.imusic-school.com/en/tools/online-piano-keyboard/

Also, grades 3 through 5 can do this in Soundtrap by clicking here: https://www.soundtrap.com/studio/assignment/2EH5wofDR2eZrJ__VunDdA/

Hear Dr. Bob play Yaman on the clarinet here!

Multicultural Festival – This Land Is Your Land

Let’s try an experiment! I tried invite all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to my project, entitled, “This Land Is Your Land,” but I was limited to inviting only 40 students. If you received an invitation from me on Soundtrap, please accept it and try using to following lyrics to add a track of you singing along. I could save several recording of the same song with 40 different students again and again and then mix them all together in a different program. If you haven’t been invited yet, try using this link: https://www.soundtrap.com/studio/assignment/zgFVWR9KRJ28Qv9kmflJpw/Let’s give it a try and see what happens.

All of the K-2 grades can record themselves singing this song in Seesaw using the following accomaniment:

Here are the lyrics:

This Land is Your Land

Woody Guthrie

This land is your land, and 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
Saw below me the golden valley
This land was made for you and me

This land is your land, and 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

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

(Instrumental Break)

When the sun come shining, then I was strolling
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
A voice was chanting as the fog was lifting
This land was made for you and me

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

This land was made for you and me.
