Post Show

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Last Thursday’s performance was absolutely great. I would like to thank all of the students and teachers of MJGDS for their hard work and support. This night would not have happened without you. I would also like to thank the PTA and our MJGDS Administration for their support during the entire process. All of you should feel very proud of the performance you put on. I have the best students in the world and just wanted to thank you for all the hard work that you do. Thank you so much!

3rd grade 7 continents song

7 Continents in this World

There are 7 continents in this song that we will sing.
7 continents in this world – in this world that we live in.
Europe, Africa, North and South America. (2x)
Asia, Australia and Antartica (2x)

There are 7 continents in this song that we will sing.

The first is Europe with its Eiffel Tower,
It’s London Bridge and its waddling mallard.

Africa has rich jungle for miles,
Old pyramids and the River Nile.

North America is very diverse
Filled with national parks and colored birds

In South America there’s a big rain forest
Filled with monkeys and flowers and many natural showers

Asia has great big pandas,
Dancing dragons and tall pagodas

In Australia, there are cuddly Koalas,
And an Opera House that would knock your socks off.

Antarctica has glaciers of ice
It is cold, there are penguins, and indeed it’s white.

There are 7 continents, in this song that we will sing.
7 continents in this world – in this world that we live in.
Europe, Africa, North and South America. (2x)
Asia, Australia and Antartica (2x)

5th grade Magellan song

Magellan

Once was a man, his name was Magellan.
A portuguese skipper
The girls found him cute
He sailed with five ships,to find the East Indies,
Then come back to Spain, with a bounty of loot.
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Oh happy Magellan!
Starting your journey with hardly a care.
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Strong, brave Magellan!
You’ll find the East Indies , you just don’t know where.

They crossed the Atlantic and spotted a country.
Magellan said,
“It’s the East Indies at last!”
But then someone shouted,
“Hey, that’s Argentina!”
Magellan got cranky and chopped down the mast.

Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Settle down, Magellan.
Put down that axe.
There’s no time to despair.
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Keep trying, Magellan.
You’ll find the East Indies, you just don’t know where.

A great storm arose
In the mighty Pacific
The five little ships
Were diminished to three
At last land was sighted
Magellan was happy
But then someone shouted,
“Hey, that’s Chile!”

Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Cheer up, Magellan
Check out your map and don’t tear out your hair
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Keep trying, Magellan
You’ll find the East Indies, you just don’t know where.

It took them five months, but they crossed the Pacific
They spotted a land, that was dotted with palms
Magellan proclaimed,
“Yes! That’s the East Indies!”
But then someone shouted,
“Hey, I think that’s Guam!”

Ay-yi-yi-yi
Oops, Magellan
Your fun little journey’s
Become a nightmare
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Keep trying, Magellan
You’ll find the East Indies, you just don’t know where

They sailed due west
To the Philippine Islands
Magellan was pleased
As the natives drew near
But then someone shouted,
“I think they’re attacking!”
Magellan said, “What?”
And got hit by a spear

Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Farewell, Magellan
You almost made it
It’s really not fair
Whoopie ti-yi-yo
Oh, ghost of Magellan
The East Indies islands were right over there!
