Dragii mei,

Cu mare bucurie va anunt ca am inregistrat o noua piesa marca Roton – Magic Bell: Three Blind Mice!

Stiati ca…

“Three Blind Mice” este unul dintre cele mai iubite cantecele pentru copii.

Originea acestei piese dateaza inca din 1609, cand a fost scrisa pentru prima data de Thomas Ravenscroft in “Deuteroelia” sau “The Seconde part of Musicks melodie”.

Unele voci spun ca este vorba despre cei trei Protestanti executati de Regina Mary I a Angliei, in conflictul dintre Catolici si Protestanti. De fapt, in cantecel este vorba despre MArtirii Oxfordului, ce au fost judecati pentru erezie si executati pe rug in anul 1555.

Versiunea moderna a cantecului a fost introdusa in literatura copiilor mult mai tarziu, la inceputul secolului al 19-lea, iar versurile sale difera de original.

“Three Blind Mice”

Three blind mice. Three blind mice.
See how they run. See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a sight in your life,
As three blind mice?

Impreuna cu cei de la Roton, am mai inregistrat si:

Alice The Camel

Alice the Camel, sau uneori Sally The Camel, este un cantecel clasic ce ii invata pe copii sa numere descrescator.

Pentru a face cantecul mai interactiv, copiii pot arata pe degete numarul corespunzator fiecarei strofe. De fiecare data cand canta “So, go, Alice, go”, cei mici pot pretinde ca alearga, in timp ce pe ultimul vers, “Boom, boom, boom, boom”, ei pot sari cat de zgomotos pot.

“Alice The Camel”

Alice the camel has five humps.
Alice the camel has five humps.

So go, Alice, go!
Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Alice the camel has four humps.

So go, Alice, go!
Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Alice the camel has three humps.

So go, Alice, go!
Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Alice the camel has two humps.

So go, Alice, go!
Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Alice the camel has one hump.

So go, Alice, go!
Boom, boom, boom, boom!

Alice the camel has no humps.
Alice the camel has no humps.
Alice the camel has no humps.
‘Cause Alice is a horse, of course!

Do, Re, Mi

Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow sew
Tea, I drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to do

Do re mi fa so la ti do, so do

Din musicalul “The Sound of Music.” (1959). Cantat in film de Julie Andrew in rolul “Maria” si de copiii familie Von Trapp.

If You’re Happy and You Know It

If You’re Happy and You Know It, uneori cunoscut ca si Happy Song, este un cantec penru copii foarte popular aparut pentru prima data in anii 1950 in SUA.

Exista mai multe versiuni ale acestui cantec acesta putand fi cu usurinta extins in cadrul activitatilor de circle time, iar copiii si profesorii pot adauga versuri in functie de dorintele lor.

“If You’re Happy and You Know It”

De obicei:


If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
(clap clap)
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
(clap clap)
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
(clap clap)
The “clap your hands” part is then switched with other phrases like:
snap your fingers!
pat your head!
shout Hooray!
nod your head!
turn around!
slap your knees!
etc

Mary Had a Little Lamb

“Mary Had a Little Lamb” este un frumos cantec pentru copii, ce povesteste despre o fetita ce a venit intr-o zi cu mielul sau la scoala.

Versurile apartin scriitoarei americane Sarah Josepha Hale (1788-1879) iar instrumentalul a fost compus de compozitorul Lowel Mason in anii 1830.

Povestea este bazata pe fapte reale. S-a intamplat unei fete de 14 ani care, incurajata de fratele sau, a adus mielul la scoala. Desigur, ea nu a putut ascunde animalutul, iar acesta a devenit curand subiect de discutie pentru colegii acesteia.

“Mary Had a Little Lamb”

Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.

And everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.

It followed her to school one day
which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
to see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
but still it lingered near,

And waited patiently about,
till Mary did appear.

“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
the eager children cry.

“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know.”
the teacher did reply.
