Invent ourselves every time

Part of my job as Lashon teacher is to teach my kids the holiday songs; it’s a good way to do something fresh and unusual, and also music is the easiest way to connect everybody. Come on, who doesn’t love music, right??

So this week we are practicing on Tu b’eshvat – but this time I wanted to do something even more fun than just sing it, soooooo I acted like a conductor in a concert – and they loved it. They even asked me if they could take their turn and be the conductors – and so they did. I have to admit it is so much fun to learn a song that way. See you for our next “concert!”

Pre-K in Music!

Lately our Pre K students have been exploring and learning about a lot of different music and instruments. Last week, we learned about the orchestra and all of the different musicians and instruments that are used in it. We watched a video of an orchestra performing and talked about how all the musicians follow the conductor, which helps them to perform as a group. Later we practiced playing as a group and following a conductor using some hand drums!
