First Grade came today. We continued to step up our singing skills - but the real fun was around food! So many different favorite foods to eat in song from Sushi to Pizza to Sandwiches to Soup - all spoken in time to a clapping and patting pattern. And then we had to put our food on plates! Instead of singing our plate passing game song and using only one plate, we added as many as four plates to the game as we sang and practiced steady beat in passing the plate to the next person in our class singing circle. Well! It sounds like the kids eat well and next week we'll move to the next challenge...!
