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), How Far I’ll Go (Moana), Can’t Stop the Feeling (Trolls), Into the Unknown (Frozen), Surface Pressure
  • Move: 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.
