Yes I Can!

This week I attended several professional development workshops and one particular person that I am in awe of and appreciate with so much respect is Canadian musician, Alvin Law.  I think there are many lessons, for the young and old, that we can learn from and aspire to as we hear Alvin's story.

Alvin had a great honor to be the drummer for this amazing song, We're the Superhumans.  From this day on, no matter, the challenge or difficulty, we all need to adopt the "Yes, I can!" attitude.

Storytelling and Music

One of my favorite things to do is read stories and create mini dramas and music to them.  This past week the Grade 1/2 classes have been listening, acting, and playing to fun stories that connect us to the fall season.

Drums Alive

We've been learning about playing in a beat along to music.   We are using exercise balls on pails.  This program is for exercise and it's called Drums Alive, but a super great way to practice our music skills.  Here are a few of our favorite songs.
