Silly Songs with the Barnyard Bard
Assembly / Performance
In Silly Songs with the Barnyard Bard, animal songs such as ‘Everybody’s Wakin’ Up,’ colorful visuals, and animated stories give students a fun appreciation of farms. The audience plays ‘The Breakfast Game’ and the ‘Where Did it Come From?’ game, which help students see the central role that farms play in our everyday lives.

"Fun songs that were musically appropriate for pre-kindergarten to second grade, well as great science and social studies connections."

"My class has been so obsessed with writing math raps, songs, and parodies that we now have a scheduled day of the week as performance day. The kids called it Portable Idol or Kids Factor and they have a rubric for me to use to judge them. Thanks for awakening their musical creative side."
Kathleen, Westbrook Elementary
