March 2020 MUSIC NOTES

Welcome to the homepage of The Goddard School of Snoqualmie! We are so excited to share with you what’s happening this month in music.


Theme: Transportation

Class Instruments : Sand Blocks and Finger Cymbals

Sharing Instruments: Railroad spikes

Summary: This month we are singing, playing and moving to songs all about transportation. We will use our sand blocks to imitate different types of transportation, and play finger cymbals while we ride the fire truck. We’ll also enjoy familiar children’s songs like Little Red Caboose, The Wheels on the Bus, and I’ve been Working on the Railroad. We will sing two musical stories: We All Go Traveling By and either Magic Train Ride or the Wheels on the Bus depending on the age of the class.

Activity for home: We are starting each class by singing and doing the motions for Little Red Caboose. Lyrics are included below. Another favorite is Laurie Berkner’s Airplane Song. This is a fun movement song which also allows for the kids to use their imaginations.

Little Red Caboose

Little red caboose, chug, chug, chug

Little red caboose, chug, chug, chug

Little red caboose behind the train, train, train, train

Smokestack on its back, back, back, back

Comin’ down the track, track, track, track

Little red caboose behind the train. Choo! Choo!
