Hands, Fingers, Thumbs!

Although a fairly small turn out at Birkdale today, it was the usual participants and we had lots of fun! For the first 25 minutes of class I barely used my guitar. Instead, the children and I sang many finger plays, including One Little Minnow, Where Is Thumbkin, One Little Finger, and The Itsy Bitsy Spider. The kids were impressively able to follow along really well, doing the appropriate actions and singing the correct parts. We then stood for The Tree Song, and then reviewed the Claves as the instrument of the week. There are some super little rhythm-keepers at Birkdale! Jam and parachute were of course tons of fun as usual. claves
