Music and Spirit!

It’s great to be back at Beatrice House, and I was so happy to see many familiar faces mixed in with many new ones! I started the class off by asking all the moms to sit on the carpet (which they all did!) but as soon as we did any movement based songs, the kids took over and the moms were pushed to the sidelines.

Since I was dealing with many new people, I wanted the repertoire to be easy/popular so everyone could participate. We started off the class with Wake Up My Hands and then took a journey with Wheels on the Bus, Row, Row, Row Your Boat, and Zoom, Zoom, Zoom. The jam session ended with a big hand clapping, belt out version of Little Little Birds. We definitely had a large number of women from Jamaica who were very excited to sing Bob Marley's classic hit.
