I am happy to see that somewhere Elementary School Chorus must be happening. With the pandemic still heavily present among us, I have been happily surprised to see that some of my Fun Songs for Kids have still been purchased. I assume for Children's Choruses around the country.
The three big winners so far this Fall have been "Jingle Bells for 2-Part Children," "Let Kindness Begin with Me" and "For This is Halloween."
"For This is Halloween" began as a little finger play song somebody showed me once. She didn't know where it came from. We were doing a big Fall Festival and needed various "booths" to entertain the masses in areas around the perimeter of the gym and in classrooms around the facility. She asked me if I could do a Singing Room.
Then another year, I decided to use "For This is Halloween" in a Fall school chorus performance. I added some extra interludes and utilized paper puppets on sticks of Halloween characters for the kids to hold up. Turned out so cute and the kids loved singing it.
