Information About That's What I Learned at my School

Believed by some to have been an old German folk song, 'That's What I Learned at my School' is a rather long song for young children (aged 3-5) but can also be brilliant at encouraging interaction and physical activity.

The original German verse is supposed to be: Hands on mineself Vas is das here? Das is my Brot Korb [bread basket], Mama, mama dear. Brot Korb, Brot Korb, Inky, dinky doo Das vat ve learned in da school Ya, ya!

During the performance of the song you can have the children touch the body part which is mentioned; which usually gets some giggles.

At the end of each verse children can slap their thighs or alternatively you can get them to clap their hands twice for the 'boom, boom'.

Traditionally each verse is supposed to be sung faster until it is almost impossible to sing the lyrics.

Singing this song is the only specific memory I have of 5th grade. We had great fun singing along with Mrs. Boree. I'm 50 now, and the thought of racing through it still makes me smile.

This takes me back to camp in the 1950's. We sang a version of this song. Our children and now our grandchildren love to hear us sing it. They laugh every time.
