Fifth Grade Favorite Folk Song...and Giveaway Winners!

Today is my last day in my Week of Thanks and Giving!

Just search "weekofthanks" for the goodies, which includes a music quote freebie, my Christmas post office set for 30% off, my fifth grade concept plan starter pack for $1, and now my fifth grade favorite folk song! 

My favorite all-time folk song for fifth grade is "Ye Toop Doram," but I already blogged about that song here, so I'll write instead about "Chairs to mend."

Here is the notation so that it is easier to read!

There is no game for this--that I know of--it is just a really beautiful song! I love to use it for fa, for tam-ti, and for partwork, as it works well as a 4-beat round. It is a song about people selling their wares on the street, so I like to have discussions with students about where else they've seen that (in big cities, at baseball games, etc.) I think it would be a great connection to the song "Who will buy" from the musical "Oliver"!

And now I'm really excited to announce my giveaway winners!

The winner of the $50 gift card to TpT is (drumroll, please)....Tina Jones!!!

The winner of the $25 credit to my store is....Kim Letellier!

The winner of my singalong set is...Christy Gibson!

Ladies, I will send you all an email soon. Thank you SOOO much to everyone who participated in the Week of Thanks and Giving. I really appreciate all of your support. Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
