1st Grade Christmas Program VIDEO 1 (Of many to come!)

Now, I know what you're thinking.  Why would I want to see video of your lame old Christmas program, Cheeseboy?  I mean, how many times do I have to watch six-year-olds sing Santa Claus is Coming to Town while standing stone-faced and sad?

Well, well, well.  You have never seen one of OUR Christmas programs.  This is not your normal, boring Christmas program.

So, I've decided to post one video per day.  I shall do this for two reasons 1) I had my wife film it in high def which takes FOREVER to upload to Youtube.  2) I want to stretch this thing out as long as I can and keep my audience begging for more.

Today, for our first installment, I give you "Elves Just Wanna Have Fun".  I rewrote the words to "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" to fit our theme.  My wife was filming from the middle of the auditorium and so it is she couldn't film the dancing stars that came forward in the middle of the song.  Hope you enjoy!

(PS: The audience ate this one up.  There was a huge roar when they finished.)

Melinda said...

Awesome! Not as good as the last one you did, it was Queen wasn't it? Gonna have to check it out to see for sure, but Queen will always trump Cindy Lauper! :D

That is just too awesome.

I have never found myself smiling at a children's program before (unless the smiling came with mocking).

Had to say I was dreading watching the video but with nothing better to do, thanks to an hour delay this morning, I clicked on it. This was fun! I especially loved the elf that was standing by herself on the left. My mind went to several reasons why she was by herself but in the end, she stoled the show in my eyes ;o)

I was anxiously waiting for this all day yesterday!!! Then you go and post it after my bedtime. Can't wait to see the others.

Joann Mannix said...

Oh Cheese! I love your musicals so much! And of course, the kids are doing the robot! When those kids grow up, they'll be able to tell such tales about their cool first grade teacher/lunch lady.

Jenn said...

OMG...that has to be the cutest Christmas program I have ever seen! You, Cheeseboy.. ROCK!! Why didn't I have a cool teacher like you when I was in school????

Kristina P. said...

This is awesome! You are like Will Schuster, but without skinny jeans.,

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Bravo!

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* Man, I wish you'd taught at our elementary school. Our kids got to do some cool stuff, but the didn't really have much whimsy to them. This is great!

KyAnn (like Cayenne Pepper, only HOTTER) said...

*bowing to you* I have a first grader (yes, at my age) and her program was turbo lame. This was epic. Go you!

Oilfield Trash said...

Love this post.

Bossy Betty said...

I still remember your group's rendition of "We Are the Champions." Students and parents alike will always remember you!

mintifresh said...

Once again I bow to your brilliance!

Every time I see one of these videos I want to pick up and move to your school zone and keep my kids in 1st grade forever!! You truly make it as fun as it should be! Can't wait for more!

Mommy Lisa said...

The only good part of Boo Boo's Christmas program was that Mary didn't show up and the principal said Joseph was a single parent. ;)

Yours was awesome.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Sweet! i so wish we'd do something fun like this! Can you send me the words?

Leeuna said...

The kids really had fun with this one I'm sure. They did a great job too. Wonderful idea and so creative. You rock as a teacher Mr. Cheeseboy.

baygirl32 said...

wish kiddo's concert had an act like that!

T said...

So hilarious - love it, next year they can sing my I wonder as I wander song :) (okay, not really... I wouldn't wish the high notes on your little darlings)

and yes, I'm still reading... couldn't go a whole week without some good cheesy humor.

M-Cat said...

And yet, you've got another hit on your hands. I am going to ask for an encore presentation from one of your students on Sunday. At church.

Noelle said...

As always, you amaze and dazzle!

Missy said...

You are a Super Teacher! This is just too cute...

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

You're so good. The kids really enjoyed rocking this one. xo

Marnie said...

Nice job! I'll bet you're a lot of fun with your students.

"Miss Bee" said...

I want to be in first grade again and I want YOU to be my teacher! Love it!

The Church Lady said...

Ya'll sure do know how to put on a good concert. Normally I fall asleep at those things! Great lyrics Cheeseboy!

Karen said...

Look forward to your videos with the kids. Another great job.

Eva Gallant said...

Really, too cute!

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

This had to be my fav - probably just because one of those cute little robots up front was mine! :-) Like I said -- you could make millionzzz!

Kelley said...

ROAR!!! See? There was even a big roar from your blogging audience over this one, too. That was so, so, so cute! My son will be in first grade next year. I know he'd love to be a part of a show like this one. I REALLY liked how the elves broke out the Sprite. Adorable!!!

Teachinfourth said...

Man…and we're just going to do 'The Santa Claus Rock.' I just might have to break out and be a little more creative next year...

Pat Tillett said...

You are all kinds of awesome my friend! That was great...

Lisa Loo said...

You were right--definitely helping with the lack of smiles in Montana---thanx for sharing.
I think what you do by helping these kids make music out of the box deserves an award but it is against my religion to do the whole hero worship thing....

The Invisible Seductress said...

Oh man,,,,, that was sooooo cute!!!!


Please move here so you can be my kid's teacher!!

please


no really will you?

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Wow! I can't decide if I'd rather be in first grade right now or ask you for your lyrics sometime! LOL!

Jason, as himself said...

I have never heard this song before! I love it.
