Jasmine Cebada-Bush talks to one of her fans after performing during a concert at Fairview Wednesday. Parents and grandparents were invited to attend.
What kind of dog can tell time? A watchdog.
Kindergarten students at Fairview Elementary performed for their parents and grandparents during a recital Wednesday afternoon.
The students sung songs, told rhymes, recited a book and told jokes during the half-hour long performance.
The book that was recited is called "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom." It's also known as the alphabet book.
In the book all of the letters of the alphabet race up a coconut tree until it gets too crowded and they all fall down.
The pun-filled jokes were told between songs.
"What kind of flowers are on your face?" students asked. "Tulips."
"What kind of tree has hands? Palm Trees."
The jokes went on and on until the final number.
It was a song about Tony Chestnut.
The song is sung to the tune of "Frere Jacques" and goes "Tony Chestnut knows I love you, Tony knows, Tony knows."
The kids danced along with the song pointing at their toes, knees and noses where it fit with the song. Toe-knee-nose.
The song goes along to tell about Tony's sister Eileen, or for the spirit of the dance moves, I-lean.
"This song is silly, but it's hip. How it ends, just one man knows."
The kindergarten students will perform again at 2 p.m. Friday at Fairview.
