It’s here! It’s here! Hellooooo, SPRING! My students and I have been singing Wave Goodbye to Winter all month long in anticipation of the new season, and though I had planned to feature this song in last week’s video, laryngitis got in the way.
As you can tell by listening, the song was written to be sung before spring actually begins. But I’ll continue singing it for the rest of March with just two minor lyric changes:
Sing because spring is finally here.
Sing because the sky is blue and clear.
Sing with the birds, up in the tree,
Sing and clap your hands with me.
When I started writing this song last year, I didn’t intend for it to be a movement song. But it’s hard not to move and dance around when you’re singing about something as happy as waving goodbye to winter…am I right?
