Today began with a story told by master storyteller, Beth Wakelee. Mrs Wakelee used to teach here at Dunham, but she retired a few years ago. She was visiting in kindergarten on her way to be the substitute for the Spanish teacher. Here she is telling her story about a grandmother, a jackal, a bear, and a tiger.
It was Rebecca's day. She led lines and got to pick out the dance we did today which was our current favorite, "Listen and Move" by Greg and Steve. She led the dance, too. Here she is galloping around the room.
Thanks to those of you who've offered to help towards the purchase of ukuleles for my classroom. We've made a start.
I retract what I said about the guitar being impossible for kindergartners to play. It seems that North Koreans do a pretty good job teaching guitar to five year old kids. Get a load of this most remarkable kindergarten kid in North Korea.
Thanks, Matthew for sharing this piece of evidence to refute my overly pessimistic statement. I underestimated what people are capable of. I stand corrected.
