I'm a Gummy Bear?!

Learning patterns to the Gummy Bear song
Today the Grade 1 classes were introduced to the Drums Alive program.

Our 3 rules are:
1. safety
2. respect
3. participate (who doesn't?!)

Our first song is learning patterns.  We realize that we have to know our RIGHT and LEFT or we can easily get mixed up and bump into someone.  We also have to be able to count to 8, feel the beat, follow the pattern (teacher) and listen to the music all at the same time.  It's hard at first but fun when we all get it!  Once we know it, we can start singing along!

The form of the song is ABCADBCAEAF.  Wow!  That's alot to remember!
