Silly Songs with the Barnyard Bard
In the assembly “Silly Songs with the Barnyard Bard,” Mr. Alden uses various animal-themed songs like ‘Everybody’s Wakin’ Up,’ along with vibrant visuals and animated narratives, providing students with an enjoyable way to develop an understanding and appreciation for farms. This interactive experience includes activities like ‘The Breakfast Game’ and the ‘Where Did it Come From?’ game, designed to highlight farms’ significant role in our daily lives.
"Fun songs that were musically appropriate for pre-kindergarten to second grade, well as great science and social studies connections." —Jessica, Music Teacher, Oakdale Elementary
"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
"Awesome, active engagement from all students. Every student had a part or job to do. Alden was fantastic! He challenged and motivated every student in a fun and meaningful way." —Lexi, Third Grade Teacher, Emma K Doub Elementary
