All Nature Sings

All nature sings and round me rings the music of the spheres!

This year's theme in music class is all about listening to, seeing, and experiencing our natural world. We will sing, do finger plays, dance, and play instruments; using a variety of musical ways to express the natural world that we so enjoy here in Vermont and around the globe. Our Winter Lights concert this year is on December 10th at 1:00. Be sure to mark your calendars. We will be singing a variety of songs with the theme "Freezing" and ending with a medley of... you guessed it....songs from "Frozen"!

Glad Place

By Susan Detweiler

Strolling through the Meadow on this breezy autumn day,
I hear sweet birds, soprano songs, as I walk along the way.

The river whispers secrets and I stop and strain to hear.
It tells me of its travels and it smiles through its tears.

Or is this rain. Ah, yes! It's so! I run to find some cover.
A grove of trees, red and yellow, will make a fine umbrella.

Thunder's calling from a distance.The sun peeks through a cloud.
Golden raindrops glisten. I say, "That's so cool!", out loud.

Crickets creak. Frogs low speak. I notice and I sigh.
A lovely way to end my day. "Goodnight, glad place, Goodbye!".
