PLAYLIST




This is a HUGE playlist of every instrument I could find! I searched for solo instruments playing interesting songs and for voices and ensembles, too.



Ideas for writing your letter to a Veteran or Military person 

(everyone)

My country 'tis of thee sweet land of liberty
of thee I sing!
Land where my fathers died
land of the Pilgrims' pride.
From ev'ry mountainside let freedom ring!


(some 1st & 2nd graders)
Our fathers' God to thee Author of liberty
to thee we sing
long may our land be bright
with freedom's holy light
protect us by thy might, great God our King!

(some 2nd graders)
O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness and every gain divine!

(everyone)
O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee.
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

Thank you, VETERANS!




this video has the verses listed above, but also has extra verses that we will not sing.


"America the Beautiful"
O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee.
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!


O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness and every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years
thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears.
America! America! God mend thine every flaw.
Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law.







Ms. Turgeon's very, very favorite version of "America the Beautiful"
