Listen and Learn Music: The Colors of the Season

Thursday, December 4, 2008

The Colors of the Season

I love this time of year. Everyone is in a good mood, and there's a sense of excitement and anticipation in the air, which makes even the extremely cold temperatures tolerable. When I was younger, my family used to drive around different neighborhoods and admire the Christmas lights and decorations, and I still enjoy doing so to this day.

There's no doubt an abundance of red and green in your home, at the mall, in your workplace, and all around your city, and that is what today's song is about.

Red and green are the colors of the season,
Red and green are the colors all around,
Red and green are the colors of the things we see,
All over the town.

We’ll start with red, R-E-D,
Red is the color of the things we see.
Like candy canes and berries and Santa’s clothes,
Poinsettias and drums and big red bows.

Red and green are the colors of the season,
Red and green are the colors all around,
Red and green are the colors of the things we see,
All over the town.

Next is green, G-R-E-E-N,
We see this color again and again.
Like Christmas trees and wreaths and mistletoe,
Wrapping paper, ornaments, and lights aglow.

Red and green are the colors of the season,
Red and green are the colors all around,
Red and green are the colors of the things we see,
All over the town.

You can make this song interactive by asking your students to identify objects in the classroom that are red and green, which - I can tell you from experience - kids love. Another idea: make pictures of each item in the song and have the children name them during the verses. Or insert your own red and green items to make the song unique.

Hello Rachel! I love the catchy lyrics and melodies!! This became one of my favorite holiday activity songs. Over this weekend, I made little books which have pictures of all the red & green objects. I used them with children at preschool & elementary schools as we sang, hummed, and moved to the tune in group sessions. They had so much fun with this tune and it was quite successful! Thank you Rachel for sharing this song!!
