We had a slightly smaller group this week, and unfortunately not a lot of parents. Nonetheless, the kids were engaged and extremely high-energy. In fact, I wonder if moving to a slightly larger room (like the playroom) might be a good option in the future where there would be more space for parents and fewer couches for the kids to crawl over during classes. Regardless, the attention in the room became focused on the maracas, which we shared one by one around the room. Eventually all the kids got maracas, and we had an extra-long jam session with just maracas (the kids have a great feel for shaking in time!). Next week we’ll start making use of all of the instruments in the bag.
