I'm A Little Scarecrow

by Teresa Jennings

Here's a very short and very simple tune for your youngest singers. Seasonal if you like, but not necessarily, it lets them pretend that they are little scarecrows chasing away crows. There are optional claps at the beginning as well as optional movement suggestions right on the music during the chorus at measure 9. Use them as is, or adapt however works for you.

To make this more usable for older kids as well, consider adding the optional mallets part. Marimba, xylophone, or any C instrument will work nicely.
