Sing Along

“Sing Along…” by Linda Martin Andersen

A Writer's Playground Fotosearch_u17996074 “A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.

March is Sing With Your Child Month. 

I am very fortunate that my maternal grandfather loved to sing silly songs.  I remember singing along with him.  Sometimes, our family sang songs like “On Top of Old Smokey,” as we traveled on vacation.  What memories do you have of singing along with an adult?  I hope you’ll share comments here.  Even better, go sing with someone.  Have fun!

History of Sing-along Songs:

Sing-along with Mitch Miller.  Check out early TV programs featuring the bouncing ball.  Notice that the singers stood still.  http://www.emmytvlegends.org/interviews/shows/sing-along-with-mitch

Sing-along Collections:

Do you own a sing-along collection?  Here’s a Disney one.  http://www.amazon.com/Sing-Along-Songs-Disneyland-Fun/dp/B0009X75W4

Sing-along Songs I remember well:

Create Your Own Piggyback Songs (changing lyrics)
