Christmas Concert Dilemnas
Each year my school puts on a Christmas concert. Each teacher is responsible for their own little performance (no longer than five minutes from walking on the stage and off) as all the different grades perform. Since I am not very musically inclined this is challenging for me. I decided to write this blog post in the hopes of helping others that are in a similar situation.
The problem I always encounter is that most of the children’s Christmas music songs are sung by adults or are too complicated for my little ones. I like the background music to blend in with my student’s voices and this is not possible when an adult is singing. It is for this reason I specifically had the “Alpha Tunes CD” sung by children. I did find a few online songs that were sung by children and are appropriate for our little learners.
Children Christmas Songs Sung By Children And Are Appropriate For Young Learners
I really like the site outlined below and specifically all the songs that are sung by W.L.A. Children’s Music Choir as the choir consists of young voices.
My Idea For This Year
I chose “The Ha Ha Holiday Song” found in the link above and sung by the W.L.A. Children’s Music Choir. During the laughing part I was going to have the audience join in. This is a simple and fun song for the children.
Additional Narrative Part – Recipe For A Happy Christmas
Prior to singing the song above a pair of students are going to come forward to the microphone and say a very short line each about what ingredients are included for making a “Happy Christmas Recipe”. They will add these ingredients to a large mixing bowl held by students dressed as bakers. These verses can easily be changed according to the number of students you have and what you feel is important to include. My ideas and lines are presented in the document below:
