Music to spark a better life for older adults and preschoolers


This week my focus is on transportation in song. This post is inspired by a horse-drawn carriage that passed by my house a week ago. It is not uncommon for people in northwest Kansas to ride  horses. So, horse can be an appropriate means of transportation to include during Transportation Week. It so happens “She’ll be Comin’ Round the Mountain” is a frequently requested song in my intergenerational and older adult groups. I also use in my preschool groups. In an effort to create more variety in the song and to use various skill sets, here’s one adaptation I use:

In addition, we may have conversations about the items:

  • Why would she bring a toothbrush with her?
  • What juice is orange?
  • Is anyone wearing blue socks?

I would love to read your ideas on this adaptation. Please share them in the comments below!
