Welcome to the 2007
"Living in My Neighborhood Calendar"

A Collection of Activities, Songs, and Projects That Can Make A Difference



Here at Music Mobile, WE BELIEVE IN THE POSITIVE POWER OF YOUNG PEOPLE to make a difference at home, in school, in our neighborhoods, and in the world. That's why we created the Living In My Neighborhood Calendar to be used by young people who care about their communities.

With 365 days in the year, you have 365 chances to do things to make life better for all of us! Even if you do only SOME things in the calendar on SOME of the days of the year, I PROMISE THAT YOU WILL DEFINITELY MAKE A VERY BIG AND POSITIVE DIFFERENCE!

I AM SURE -- and so are millions of other people all around the world -- that day by day, month by month, person by person, hand to hand, and heart to heart, WE CAN CHANGE OUR WORLD FOR THE BETTER! Please never forget it and always believe it.

With hope and song,

Ruth Pelham

"Look Over There"

Sing this song to the tune of

"This Old Man (Knick Knack Paddy Whack)"

Look over there, I see ONE
I'll pick up the wrapper then there'll be none

Come on everybody, yes, you can do it too - People helping people, that's what we do

Look over there, I see TWO
I'll pick up the newspapers that's what I'll do **

Look over there, I see THREE
I'll pick up the bottles so carefully **

Look over there, I see FOUR
I'll pick up the papers then pick up some more **

Look over there, I see FIVE
I'll pick up the cans for the cleanup drive **

Look over there, I see SIX
I'll pick up the boxes that can't be fixed **

Look over there, I see SEVEN
I'll pick up the bags with Kayla and Devin **

Look over there, I see EIGHT
I'll pick up the cartons, won't hesitate **

Look over there, I see NINE
I'll pick up the cups though they're not mine **

Look over there, I see TEN
I'll pick up the containers, use 'em again **

Look over there, what do I see
We've picked up everything, you and me
Hurray everybody, there's nothing left to do
With people helping people, now we're through



For line 1 of each verse, point to the ground then put up the correct number of fingers. For line 2, bend down and pretend to pick up the item. For line 3, wave people toward you then point to some people. For line 4, proudly shake hands with a few people! on the last verse, try making up your own motions!
