Such a Makin' a Circle

At the request of a newly-homeschooling mom, I'm uploading (finally!) some videos of musical games & tips.  These would be appropriate for preschool-1st grade (some even 2nd).  I have been so pleased (and a bit surprised!) to see Eowyn (not yet 2) already mimicking and trying many of these on her own!  I taught a small class for some friends over the summer, and Eowyn was in my lap or on my hip for most of them, and she definitely absorbed a lot of it!

Sorry for the Dr. Jekell-Mr. Hyde look on this one, with half my face in shadow.  It's the end of a long day.

More to come... I wouldn't want to leave out solfege, "stop-slow-quick-quick" or "That's a Mighty Pretty Motion," now would I?

Christina I miss you! This is crazy- I just was reading about circle times tonight and thinking on how to make ours more fun and productive around here and then I see this link on FB which is just perfect for not only the 3 and 4 year old to develop rhythm but also for Jude (2) to work on knowing his body parts! You can come lead our circle time ANYtime :)

Oh YAY Leah!! You know what is crazy? I was just missing YOU today too-- I think your name came up in my FB reader maybe? Anyway I was thinking how weird it was that we have kids and that I never think of you as having them because we hung out without them (oh the refreshing break that was!).
