The Twelve Days of Christmas with the whole school

Every year, right before Christmas, our school has an assembly where every class sings a Christmas song. The classroom teachers choose a song for them to sing. I help a little to teach the songs.

This year, they have asked me to sing one song with the whole school. I remember when my son was a kindergartener in Illinois that his music teacher had them do "the Twelve Days of Christmas" with motions. Each grade did different movements, so that is what we will do this year.

I made visual aids to go with our song and they are a big hit. My husband doesn't  know it yet, but I am going to have him play the piano for us that day. :-)

I had a first grader, who has made it very clear that he is a science guy and not a music guy. Yesterday as we were singing the Twelve Days of Christmas using my visuals, something really perked his interest and he asked me if I had this in a book form. I told him I would make a coloring book,
so here it is.
