The 100th Episode Song Share Celebration
2022/06/22
THIS IS OUR 100TH EPISODE! If it is your first time listening I suggest starting with a different episode.  If it is your 100th time listening then hooray for us! To celebrate this milestone, we turn the mic around to our listeners and listen to them singing their favorite songs from the show as well as songs that they have written.  We got kids from all over, like The Bronx, Scotland and New Zealand, singing songs they wrote.  Anywhere you go in this world kids are making up songs and singing them together because singing together is just about the most humanly  fundamental thing two people can do. Sometimes folks who write songs get together to do a song share.  This episode is something like that.  You'll hear kids sharing their favorite songs from the show, many of them with slight changes either from misheard lyrics or modifications they felt were necessary.  That is the folk process after all.  You'll hear families harmonizing, part singing, vocal jamming and riffing back and forth the way families have been doing for centuries.  And you'll hear some of the most creative and joyful original songs you've every heard, all written and performed by the single digit class.  Pete Seeger said "Our Greatest songs are yet unsung."  Well a few of them just got sung. I hope you enjoy them and feel inspired to record a few of your own to share with your friends.  Thanks for coming to our celebration.

You won't know what it is you are drawing.  You may never know.  But I do and more importantly, fun will be had. ✪ Now that your doodle is drawn, it is time to improvise a song about the characters you just drew.  I give you prompts and you sing the answers.  It's equal parts simple and ridiculous and that's why we call it KaraYOUke.  ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that sneaks in counting skills. ✪✪✪ Echo Songs, Vol. 2 OUT NOW!: https://noodleloaf.bandcamp.com/album/echo-songs-vol-2 ✪✪✪ ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

Dinosaur songs, truck stories and even an ode to napkins.  Something for everyone! (Especially people that like music and games) This Clap It Back manages to squeeze in tributes to a few of the many celebrations happening this month like International Drum Month, Jewish American Heritage Month, National Bike Month and American Cheese Month.  What a great way to gain a strong sense of rhythm! ✪ We're also celebrating the release of Echo Songs, Vol. 2, a new collection of echo songs from the podcast.  Here is a fan favorite song, I Am a Lonely T Rex, about friendly but lonely T Rex.  Why won't anyone play with him? Is it because he'll eat them? Probably. ✪ A Tiny Song twofer! One is by me about napkins. The other is by Noodlinos Sydney and Andi and it is about Fun in the Tub. ✪ We end with a You Make The Story game all about trucks, and a little about geese. Good luck! ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that both is and ins't about geese. ✪✪✪ Echo Songs, Vol. 2 OUT NOW!: https://noodleloaf.bandcamp.com/album/echo-songs-vol-2 ✪✪✪ ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

A delightful Clap It Back about rainbows and love (dedicated to the governments of Texas and Florida.) Develop rhythmic awareness while committing to a more compassionate world. ✪ A Tiny Song called Mozzarella Sticks that is a round for kids AKA a canon for kids.  Try it out and share what you got by tagging @noodleloafshow! ✪ Our Echo Song this episode is called Outside and it is about how soul nourishing the browns and greens of the forest can be.

Really Old Radios
2022/03/16
Come for the eyeball dance, stay for the tongue twister song.  It's about a very well built boat built by billions of babies.  Babies can't build boats you say?  Can so, you just need one billion of them.  This show is actually a music education multi-vitamin.  True facts.  You'll see. We begin with Dance Dance Noodleution, a movement isolation game that puts your limbs in direct competition with each other.  The Great American Extremity Dance Off.  ✪ This Echo Song is a real tongue twister.  Very Well Built Boat will not only held develop your sense of pitch but it wall also help you tone your tongue hamstrings. ✪ A Rhyme Time of the finish-the-rap variety.  Finally you can fulfill your dreams of being the person on stage at a rap show that finishes the lead MC's lines.  Hone you phonological skills and impress your kids.  Kangols optional. We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that's 10 minutes long with songs in 4/4 coded with 1s and 0s. ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

Pants Pants Pants
2022/02/09
In today's episode we question our pants, celebrate the enormous gifts of James Baldwin and work together to make up a story about a creature who lives in a tree.  Clearly a certain streaming service should have put their production dollars into Noodle Loaf instead of that other podcaster guy.   We kick things off like we kick off our pants after a long day spent jogging in a rain storm, by questioning the need for pants in the first place.  This Call and Response game was inspired by some listeners who sent in a song they made up to help get keep up morale during wiggly diaper changes.  I flipped it and made it into a game.  Just like their baby flips and tries to make diaper changes into a game. ✪ James Baldwin Used His Words to say so many things.  He was enormously gifted at eloquently and poignantly critiquing the world around him.  This Echo Song is a tribute to his talent.  ✪ In our Mad Libs spinoff, You Make The Story, you get to fill in the blanks in real time to create whatever story your imagination wants to invent.  ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that is 100% non-GMO. ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

Onomatopeia
2022/01/26
Music people! You have arrived just in time to make rhymes, sing songs and do some creative movement games all with your host in chief, Dan Saks.  Today's episode raises a glass to celebrating Autism Awareness month way ahead of schedule.  We'll also be toasting old school flows and the art of snowman building.  If none of that makes sense it's because you haven't listened to the show yet. So do that pls.  This Rhyme Time is a little different than our usual version.  In this one, your job is to channel your inner Run DMC to anticipate and finish the rhyme at the each of our rapper's couplets. So don a Kangol and loosely lace your Adidas cause it's about to get tricky to rock a thyme that's right on time.  ✪ Today's Echo Song was inspired by a family of long time Noodlinos who requested I write an echo song to celebrate neurodiversity, or as they put it, Different Brains.  This neurodiversity awareness song for kids is an appreciation for the different kinds of brains we all have and will hopefully help neurotypical kids see themselves in the autistic children in their communities.  ✪ Who doesn't love a Time To Move game that employs a lil musique concrète to create an imaginary snowman building creative movement game? Hopefully, not you because that's what this game is. Enjoy! ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that is equal parts music and love. 30 DAY FREE TRIAL AT DIY: https://diy.org/?ref=noodleloaf ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

Sticky Sneaker Baby Bump
2022/01/12
Lots to sing and dance about today like salty soups, sticky sneaks and bananas.  Flying bananas that is.  So warm up your larynxes and press play on another episode of play based music education for humans. The kids wrote most of this Clap It Back rhythm game.  That means the lyrics are especially odd but the rhythms are just as dynamite as ever.  Rosin up your clapping hands and play along. ✪ The people have spoken and they have said that they want more Tiny Songs from Loafy Noodles.  So he's back with his new hit Salty Soup Sally about Sally who always makes her soups super salty.  Minestrone anyone?  ✪ Today's Echo Song is dedicated to grown ups who want kids to do what they tell them to do.  The song is called Do Not Ask Me Why, as in do not ask me why I write such ridiculous songs.  ✪ It's a Dance & Freeze round of our Time to Move segment.  Isolate one or more limbs, make em shimmy, and then freeze!  That's the game.  The game is fun.  You like fun.  Enjoy.   ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that have no relation to college credits. ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

The best thing about chores is identifying the sound they make using your ears.  It's downhill from there BUT with some groovy tunes on, any chore becomes a dance party.  Amiright?  Except duvet related chores, those are just a chore. We begin with an Echo Song about being the insatiable desire to take a thing apart to see how it works and then feelings that arise when you realize that putting it back together may not be in the cards.  This happens in my life more often than I'd care to admit.  Might as well sing a song about it that promotes pitch awareness in a Gypsy Punk style. ✪ Perk up your ears in this aural awareness game Name That Sound.  I will play the audio of various household chores and you must identify them.  You don't have to identify WITH them. It's not an empathy exercise, just a sound naming game.  Enjoy! ✪ And lastly, I take those chore sounds and remix them into a funky groove with which you are encouraged to Jam Along.  Your body and surroundings become drums in this body percussion and found object percussion activity. Make it funky! ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that encourages household responsibility. ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

Frogger Than Frogway
2021/11/10
Things are really starting to happen round here.  Things are getting cooking.  Rubber is meeting road.  Flubber is eating toad.  Let's goooooo music fun and games for kids and grown growns!!!  (now hiring people who know what to write in this space - no experience necessary - payment is in guitar picks) We begin with a Feel The Rhythm designed to make humans look silly while learning music fundamentals.  We put the FUN, the DUH and the MENTAL in fundamentals. Is this thing on?  Anyhow, I like this game a lot and hope you do too.  ✪ A Tiny Song called Big Chunk Charlie, about a guy who is always eating up the granola chunks.  I'll be waiting outside for my Grammy delivery if you need me. ✪ Today's Echo Song is I Want a Monkey to Hug Me.  It is about interacting with animals in ways both pleasing and not.  It is about consensual hugs.  It is about developing pitch matching skills. Is is about time a monkey gave me a nice big hug. ✪ A throwback in more ways than one: We close with Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes.  Try to keep up...or else. ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that uses the word "flubber" in its show notes. ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.

Kids will dig this play based rhyme infused educational music filled podcast as much as you enjoyed this keyword laden introductory sentence.  This episode begins with a Rhyme Time game about kindness. Can you figure out what action each kindness verb could lead to?  i.e. Make, Send, Offer? I love when phonological exercises extend into making the world a nicer place. ✪ This week's Echo Song is the 4th installment of our annual homage to the art of the homemade costume, "I Made a Costume pt.4."  "A big cardboard box / wrapped around me / two tiny hats / I'm a battery."  Happy Halloween! ✪ And we close the episode with a Guided Doodle where listeners are invited to participate in drawing a mystery drawing.  You will need something with which to draw and something on which to draw upon.  Like pencil and paper for example.  Share your drawings by tagging @noodleloafshow wherever you like to tag stuff. ✪ We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson for kids that occasionally involves drawing pictures. ✪✪✪ I have written three pictures books celebrating families.
