The children get excited when they start their week with music. The way the children sit with anticipation and eagerness to hear what song Morah Jill is going to sing or teach them is amazing. The children love using the props that Morah Jill uses; leaves, fruit, and scarves to name a few. Following the directions Morah Jill gives is key to making music class such a sucess. The children wish that their time with Morah Jill would never end.
Even though the time with Morah Jill had to come to an end, the children were not ready to let the music end. Morah Aimee and Morah Debra took out some special instruments so the children could continue to enjoy the music. The children followed or copied a beat that Morah Aimee beat on the drums. It was remarkable how well the children did following the beat. We have a very musical group of children.
With the weather not allowing the children to go outside and play, Morah Pam, Morah Aimee, and Morah Debra were resourceful with different activities to keep the children busy during the time that they would go outside to play. Using the sand table was fun. The children loved the way the sand felt going between their fingers, digging and scooping the children felt like they were at the beach. Playing ” Who can do what I do” is a favorite game where the children copied the actions that Morah Pam does. This time we tried to see all the different body parts we could wiggle. Wiggling our ears was the favorite thing to wiggle. “Rub a dub dub three men in a tub”, it was adorable how the children climbed into the pool and were having a great time pretending to be fishermen. Indoor play is another fun option for the children. They can ride bicycles,” mow the lawn”, hop on the hoppity horses, shoot baskets, and do as many other activities that their imaginations let them.
Once the weather cooperated, the children were happy they could go outside to play. Running around and playing in the leaves was so much fun.
The children know that the weather will be getting colder but are hoping that it will still be warm enough to go outside to play for a little bit longer.
