This week was a loud one! With such a big class, I was surprised everybody fit, but the circle ended up quite well organized, with the youngest kids closest and the older siblings providing encouragement at the back. Though the size of the group is wonderful, sometimes it can be hard for the parents to participate with the kids when there are so many of them, which is why standing, dancing, and circle songs always do the trick of getting the kids and grown-ups engaged at the same time. Today’s big hit was the Hokey Pokey, with the grown-ups helping the kids find their lefts and rights. When they have more fun, everyone does!
