On a fine August day Ms. Kauffeld was at Goodwill browsing the paintings and posters for this that would liven up the music room.

She came across this lovely painting of a happy fellow riding a rooster. She gave him a guitar, and so began the challenge,

WRITE A SONG ABOUT THIS MAN RIDING A ROOSTER AND WIN A PRIZE.

The results have been fabulous.

Here’s ROOSTER SONGS: Holly and Anna Edition


Want to write YOUR OWN Rooster Song?

1. Come visit the painting in the Music Room.
2. Write down your lyrics.
3. Perform for Ms. Kauffeld and give her the lyrics
to go up on the wall!
4. CLAIM YOUR PRIZE!

During music class they individually entered the Recording Studio, complete with puppets, string lights, Mama Bayou and Ms. Kauffeld’s laptop, and recorded themselves!
