A New Beginning

This week was a bit of a fresh start for us all. We worked on some basics like sitting in a circle, clapping hands, stomping feet, and call and response. The children really impressed me when they shared some of their favourite songs with me. What a beautiful sound it was to hear the whole room singing together loudly in unison! The group came in pretty slowly. As the class began, there were only two children in the room with me, but many of the children entered while we were up on our feet jumping and dancing, and we ended up with 11 kids. They were very excited by the Jaw Harp, an instrument which many of them had never seen before. We ran out of time before getting to the instruments or the parachute, but despite that, I can honestly say that this was one of the best classes I have taught at this location in terms of parent and child involvement!
