Today we welcomed the 1A break back to Buckle My Shoe after our spring break! All of the children did an astounding job in readjusting to their routines, playing alongside of one another, and adapting to their environment. 

We continued exploring rhythm through Kodaly symbols, listened to percussion and violin music (both seemed to equally be a favorite) and listened to Aaron Copland's "Hoe Down". Watching the children explore, react to and develop an understanding of musical concepts has been thrilling - we are so very proud of them! 

Additionally, we would like to apologize the lack of photos today – we had some technical difficulties with our camera, but will have lots of photos up for tomorrows blog. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to sharing tomorrow’s experiences with you all!
