“Gifts in My Family”

“Gifts in My Family” evolved out of my desire to write a song about gifts for the holidays.  This book explores the difference between a thing and a thought.  This song shows the gifts we can give all the time.  One of the children really understood when he told me “I have 100 gifts.”

The children who were in my classes at the time decided they wanted to add more gifts.  So we made up “The Second Ten Gifts” and “The Third Ten Gifts”.  You can add more and more gifts when you sing this song.

Chant: “Curve Your Fingers When You Play” creates some humor as it draws attention to a musical technique through getting ready for this holiday.

Fingerplay: “Halloween Sounds” describes the types of sounds made by typical Halloween characters.

Song: “Halloween is a Night for Scares” describes the activities of going “Trick or Treating” and some of the traditions of Halloween parties.
