上禮拜六,和小朋友一起編舞,唱這首好聽的聖誕歌--- A Holly Jolly Christmas。
昨天,有家長來接小朋友,問我:「這麼早就把聖誕樹都佈置好啦?」
我跟這位爸爸說:「11月底,好多商店都佈置好了啊,很有聖誕節的氣氛。」
Yes, Christmas is coming.
 

每一年,我們唱不一樣的聖誕歌。
這樣小朋友可以多學幾首,老師們也可以多發揮創意。
最近,我在商店裡常聽到播放著聖誕歌曲,也會注意聽是哪些歌曲,比較受歡迎。
這首就常聽到。
旋律是流行歌曲,比較不像兒歌,很適合大一點的孩子。
果然,在班上一試就成功,高年級的孩子很喜歡。
歌詞不難,馬上可以上手。


Lyrics:


A Holly Jolly Christmas

Have a holly jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer (But let's all give a cheer)

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Oh, ho, the mistletoe hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you, kiss her once for me

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh , by golly have a holly jolly Christmas this year!



有些歌曲,在時間裡流傳,歌詞多少會有不同版本。
這裡的第四句歌詞,我就聽過兩種不同版本。
Barney可愛版所唱的是But let's all give a cheer,原唱Burl Ives則是But have a cup of cheer。
我的高年級學生,對於太可愛的歌聲,會嚷著說太幼稚,流行歌曲唱法對他們來說,接受度比較高。
Burl Ives唱的,有點隨性,有點浪漫,詞有時沒落在拍子上,想不到小朋友也跟唱得很好哩。


希望你也喜歡。

  • Hi Catherine:

    How have you been? Busy with school?
    I am currently teaching my 5th graders Happy New Year song.
    I am going to get them to play a few musical instruments like
    the bells, tambourines, and many other items. It is fun for the
    kids. If all works out, one 5th grade class will perform for the
    whole school.

    I love December. Actually. I LOVE winter season!

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Take care,
    Jessica
  • Hi, Jessica.
    Sorry to reply this late.
    I have tried to spend less time in front of my computer and found some time for exercising.
    I would like to know your teaching methods because they're so interesting.
    I love winter season as well, and we are quite busy preparing for the Christmas Party for the kids! After that, I'll have some more free time. I can take some days off to take a little trip. I also plan to learn to play the drums from Dorina. Join me, will you?
    It's getting colder. Please take care.
    Yours, Catherine
