Today is Joshua's last day of school for the summer. To celebrate all the parents were invited to come to a special song performance by our children. The class chose four of their favorite songs to sing for us.
Pictured above, Joshua and his classmates are singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" with the corresponding hand motions.
Joshua has become very enthusiastic about music and hand motions. He love to teach new song to Abigail. This morning I woke up to Joshua singing in his room. I went in to check on them and he informed me that they were playing "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". He was teaching Abigail the words and motions for this fun song. Wonderful!
The concert included a nursery rhyme in a middle eastern language (or maybe Egyptian, I can't remember) and a song in French. They concluded with the children's favorite, "Mash Bananas." This closing shot is the end of the Banana song. There are a few more pictures at Joshua's Last Day of School.
Everyone had a wonderful time. Abigail especially loved sitting at the little preschool tables sipping her juice while watching the singing. And we all enjoyed the yummy biscuits!
Joshua has loved his time in the OWLS class these five months and is looking forward to another great year. I was pleased to learn that his class is staying together for another year of nursery school (only two of the students are old enough to start Primary 1 (P1) / Kindergarten).
