What a wonderful way to end the session at Robertson House! The room was full of positive energy and although there were many new faces, a good time was had by all.
I was most encouraged by the participation of the grownups as we sang through many songs including Roly Poly, Bath Time, I Wake Up My Hands, Hands Together Hands Apart, Mr. Sun, The Wheels On The Bus, Little Red Wagon, Listen To The Water, Three Green And Speckled Frogs, Little Green Frog, The Crocodile Song, The Rooster Song, Old MacDonald, The Ants Go Marching and many others. We jammed to a medley of tunes; Three Little Birds, De-Oh, Rockin' Robin and some holiday favourites including the oh-so-popular Jingle Bells. We finished with some parachute time, making sure to find all the colours one by one as we sang in unison.
I took some time at the end of the class to hand out certificates while Jo Tamming assisted in helping some of the moms fill out evaluation forms. From what I could overhear, the majority of the comments were extremely positive. Teaching at Robertson House this fall has had its challenges but in my opinion, it has been an extremely rewarding session personally. I have grown so much as a teacher and hope to establish new connections with families in the new year!
