Our music teacher Evan came in today. Our music lesson started with the Wake Up Song! Next we sang the Blow the Balloon song. We blew it up, flew around with it, then it popped, and we pretended to fall to the ground. Then we turned into fish and sang a song about swimming in the water. We also turned into an octopus, a shark, a whale, and finally a dinosaur fish. Leo said that a dinosaur fish is even bigger than a whale, so we became dinosaur fish. Evan told us a story about a giant, Abiyoyo. He was asleep for a long time, and then he woke up and was hungry! So the brother and the sister made him tired again and then made him disappear. Then we sang the goodbye song.
