During our time together today, we had fun talking about the progress we've made during the time we've been together over the past few weeks. Bryann continues to share her passion for teaching and learning with me and the children as we continue with her internship.
We spent some time preparing a few activities for her to lead on her own for tomorrow's class. More to come...

Yet another rainy day, but the children enjoyed singing songs like
"Down by the Bay" and "Engine 409." The children even came up with
their own verses of Down By the bay. One of the children actually
added her own clever twist and sang "Have you ever seen a yoga mat,
rolling up itself... down by the bay!!"
One neat moment of this class was Bryann's idea of saying "Lions and
Tigers and Bears oh My" with the children. I took the opportunity to
create a circle march for them while we searched for lions, tigers,
and bears. The children loved following Bryann and as they tapped the
rhythm out on their knees while chanting.
What a great beginning to week # 5!

children at St. Michael's. Since it had been raining
for a few days now, I was anticipating a high energy class.
And we could definitely tell that there energy was very high, but that
didn't stop us from having a fun time inside!! Here
are a few snapshots of just a few of the activities we did in class
The children love to follow Miss Bryann during our circle dance time.
This week, we lined up together to march and
play along to a song about trains. The children loved making the sound
of the train with their voices and the shakers.
