The Bubble Guppies’ Molly is a Singer/Songwriter, and so is Lady Gaga. What about you? Ready your magical mic and give it a try.
Printable (optional) OR toy microphone
1. Let’s make our own microphone, using Noggin’s printable or creating our own.
2. Now let’s belt out one of our favorite songs, just like Lady Gaga and Molly from Bubble Guppies!
3. For extra credit, let’s make up our own short song about something we see in our home!
We Totally Rock Song:
Marching Band Song:
Words to Use:
Songwriter – someone who writes a song
Microphone – a tool that makes your voice or an instrument sound louder.
Don’t make up your own song — just stick with singing ones you know and love.
See if your song can rhyme. You can come up with your own tune or set your song to a known melody like “Old MacDonald” or “Twinkle Twinkle.”
It takes a lot of brain power to come up with songs, write the music, learn the songs, and perform them. This activity will help kids think about what it takes to be a musician — and grow important skills.
