Lyric Writing Booklet for A My Name Is Alice Jump Rope Chant and Song

A My Name is ALICE

A, My Name is Alice by Jane E. Bayer, illustrated by Steven Kellogg. Kellogg is one of my favorite illustrators with his content-rich drawings and humor.

First verse: A, my name is Alice, and my husband’s name is Alex…

A My Name Is …

A My Name Is … by Alice Lyne, illustrated by Lynne Cravath. This version doesn’t always begin each verse with a girl’s name and replaces “husband” with “best friend.”

First verse: A my name is Alex, my best friend’s name is Angie…
Second verse: B my name is Becca, my best friend’s name is Billy…

Sing & Move Day Amazing Video Playlist

When I needed to shake it up for myself or my K-5 students, I had “Sing and Move Day.” I alternated sit-down singing videos with get up and move videos. It was a great break from the routine and I found that the kids and I both loved (and needed) it.

Pick and choose the videos that are most appropriate for your students.
Disclaimer: You should preview any video before showing it to your students.

List of Videos (A Growing Playlist)

  • Sing: All of You (Encanto), See You Again (Charlie Puth), Happier (Marshmellow), Don’t Give Up On Me (Andy Grammer), See You Again (Wiz Khalifa), How Far I’ll Go (Moana), Can’t Stop the Feeling (Trolls), Into the Unknown (Frozen), Surface Pressure
  • Move: Waka Waka, Cheerleader, Levitating, Dance Monkey, Ghostbusters, Bruno (Encanto), My Own Drum (Vivo), High Hopes, Happy

If you aren’t sitting in chairs/stools, tap foot on ground or stand up and step in place.

Kids should pedal a pretend personal bicycle at 2:19 where players as a group create the bike.
