SKU: SING

Taking children to sing for or with seniors at a Seniors Centre or Nursing home is a great activity for both the kids and the seniors. Inter-generational music making brings the generations together in an activity that all can enjoy.

In Sing Along with Seniors, we've included the songs that your students should know and that most seniors will be familiar with. We've arranged the songs in unison/optional 2 part, so that even the youngest students you teach can sing (in unison), but the 2 part arrangements will still be interesting for your upper elementary students.

Lyric Sheets

This collection will be given to any teacher who arranges a visit to a seniors centre or nursing home. This gift is given in memory of my mother, Naomi Gagné, who lived the last years of her life in a nursing home. After Alzheimer’s disease robbed her of so many memories, she could still sing and knew the lyrics to many of the songs from her childhood. It is my hope that this collection will inspire many schools to plan visits to sing along with seniors.

We would greatly appreciate receiving photos or videos of your performances!
