Music to spark a better life for older adults and preschoolers

Happy Birthday, Kansas!

The Great Seal of the State of Kansas

The great state of Kansas (where I live) will be celebrating 150 year of statehood on January 29, 2011.  Such a special birthday call for special sessions with the ALF residents I serve.

Together with the residents, we have put together this starter list of songs to share the last week of January:

  • Happy Birthday
  • Home on the Range
  • Going to Kansas City
  • Home Sweet Home
  • Over the Rainbow
  • The Sunflower Song

We’ll do a “sunflower” dance to “The Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe.” We’ll list to “Matthew” by John Denver and discuss the lyrics.  There will be lots of state trivia about Kansas, too.

Have other suggestions?  Why not share them so we may all celebrate this great state – Kansas!
