In his program Word Play, Alden Phelps combines a high-energy collection of far-fetched, funny songs and impressive guitar playing to delight every audience. In this reading and music assembly, students sing along with original songs such as:

“When They Make Me President”

“My Brother’s Got an iPod Totally Attached to His Head”

“The Mysterious Island of the Grandmas”

and “Chocolate Pie.”

Word games woven into the performance—about parts of speech, rhyming, and more—bolster language skills and inspire love of language.
