Friday was a wonderful start to the session at Birkdale! We have a nice large room in the Plaza Hotel with lots of space to move around, and the kids certainly took advantage of the opportunity. Though it initially took a little while to get everybody settled into the circle, The Hello Song had everybody focused and excited for their turn to spin around, and set the tone for participation throughout the class. The kids were all smiles as we went through songs with goofy actions and funny faces, like Sticky Sticky Bubblegum, and Little Green Frog. When it came time to bring out / put away the instrument bag, there were lots of excited helpers. I’m looking forward to seeing this group’s energy every week, especially as the songs become a bit more familiar.
