About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Music Activity

I read a book about elephants. Then we talked some about beat. I played a song that the kids knew well and had them sing and I played it on the piano completely off beat. It sounded HORRIBLE. Then I gave each one a bell and told them to play. Then I had them play as I kept beat w/ my hand so they would ding them together. I played the Baby Elephant Walk as the kids and I kept beat by tapping noses, feet, floor, head... etc Anything I could think of. It was fun. Enjoy the song.
