L-0 DOUBLE L-I-P-O-P SPELLS LOLLIPOP!

Here’s a fun little song that’s been in my head since I was about 10 years old.

It’s really the song “Harrigan” by George M. Cohan with the words and subject matter changed to – you guessed it – lollipops. :)

It’s simple and very catchy, and before long you little one will be walking around the house spelling as a result.

The lyrics are in the video, but I’ll paste them below as well.

Enjoy!

 

LYRICS:
L – O DOUBLE L – I – P – O – P
SPELLS LOLLIPOP.
IT’S SO FINE AND DANDY.
IT’S MY FAVORITE KIND OF CANDY.
L – O DOUBLE L – I – P – O – P YOU SEE,
IT’S A LICK ON A STICK
GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU SICK
IT’S A LOLLIPOP FOR ME!

Those White Choral Bells!

I’ve got a fun video replay for you this week!

*But first jEDYBD Cover sliderust a reminder that the new album is out and you can buy it and/or download it right here:

 GET THE NEW ALBUM HERE!*

*****

Now that you have your copy on it’s way – let’s get back to some video fun! 😉

I made and shared this video with you last Spring & it seemed fitting to revisit it today.

It’s a song that had been requested about a year or so before (!!) but it took me a while to get my hands on the music and lyrics.

And as I mention in the video – I thought it was a Christmas Song! But no – in this song Lillies of the Valley are being compared to white choral bells and it’s a song about Spring! (Spring, which seems to be having some trouble sticking around in my part of the world – Lol!

You don’t need a xylophone to participate, but if you’ve got one, it’s definitely fun to try!

Enjoy, have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you next Tuesday for more fun!

Story Time Video! The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

I’m adding something new to my weekly videos…..

STORY TIME!!

Every Spring I did a unit based around this book in the classroom and I’ve been wanting to somehow share that with all of you. So, I thought, “why not read the book”? There’s so much in this one to learn from – days of the week, numbers and counting, the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a butterfly, as well as lots of basic early childhood concepts like day and night, sun and moon, big and little, etc.

Let me know if you like the addition of reading books aloud to my weekly video series. If you do, then I’ll do more!

Enjoy and have a great week!

Up, Down, Up, Down – Everybody Dance Around!

If it’s Tuesday, May 3rd and your visiting this page – be sure and check out today’s LIVE ONLINE SING-ALONG over on Concert Window! We’re starting at 11 am EDT – it’s $10 to join and all proceeds go to the Lymphoma Leukemia Society. Here’s the link:

https://www.concertwindow.com/missnina

AND….the new album releases this Friday!! You’ll be able to get  your copy from me here on my store page, or on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and other online outlets.

In the meantime, here’s another sort of sneak peak at one of my favorite songs from the album, and one I love to perform live: Up & Down.

It started as a “shaker warm-up” during my sing-alongs as a way to transition from the usual guitar songs to the Brown Bear Rap. But now I love it as just a fun movement song. Get ready to move your body up and down, and high and  low. A fun, physical way to explore and learn about those early childhood concepts.

Enjoy!

Online Sing-alongs for LLS!

April_9_2016_MIT_training
I’m a Mom-In-Training!
I’ve joined the Lymphoma Leukemia Society’s Moms-In-Training in my area, and we are training for a 10K Run (or jog or walk.. :) )  to raise money to fight cancer.  The motto for Moms in Training is: “Meet moms, get in shape & fight cancer”. How great is that? We’l be running the 10K in NYC on June 11th (Yikes!)
The Miss Nina Weekly Video Show began as a way to entertain a young friend of mine who was spending her days at the Oncology Unit of her hospital – so this is very close to my heart.
While we train our bodies for the run, we’re also fundraising for LLS – and I thought there’s no better way for me to fundraise than a bunch of Online Sing-alongs!
aa
Here’s the details:

  • Tuesday, April 26th at 4 pm on Concert Window
  • Tuesday, May 3 at 11 am on Concert Window
  • Tuesday, May 10th 2:30 pm on Concert Window
It’s simply $10 to join and all the proceeds (after Concert Window takes their percentage) will go toward my fundraising goal of $500! 
If you’d like more info, feel free to visit my fundraising page and ready my story.
