This week we have a very special guest visiting our school for the first time. Mickey Pekar comes to us from the Very Merry Theater. He came to both schools this week to lead singing and dancing with the children. We hope for this to be a bi-weekly event for the children!
On Thursday Mickey visited our Burlington school. We brought all of the classrooms out to the big room where Mickey played his guitar and sang songs to the children. He even added some movement songs and instruments for the children to engage in. Everyone had a blast!
On Friday Mickey went to our Colchester school. The Infants and Young Toddlers went upstairs to the Church to dance and listen to music. Mickey played his guitar while we sang along and clapped our hands. Their favorite songs were Old Macdonald and The Itsy Bitsy Spider.
Then the Older Toddlers and the Preschools went upstairs to the church for their turn to sing and dance. Some friends even got a chance to play a few chords on the guitar. Their favorite songs were If your happy and your know it and Wheels on the bus!
We had so much fun singing and dancing to the music!
