Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 5)

I had 89 people today. In hindsight, the Marching Medley and Walking, Walking use the same song and I would have used them on different days if I’d remembered. Also, I Can Sing a Rainbow was a little short. But it’s just cool down so no biggie. Lesson: Listen to your play list ahead of…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 5)

Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 3)

Everything went really well today! I had 86 people but the kids were very good listeners and even parachute wasn’t too chaotic. One note: We Make Some Noise Together by Emmy was very quiet compared to the other songs and it was hard to hear the directions. But we muddled through.

Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 2)

How cute is this presentation? I found it in Canva of course. 85 people today. We had a blast! A couple notes: That Raffi song was way too short for instruments. By the time the kids got their instruments, and sat back down, and I started the song, it was barely worth it. It was…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 2)

Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 1)

Our first dance story time of the year! We had 79 wonderful people and had a blast! I usually put the slideshow of my slides here but WordPress has changed to some sort of awful block format and I HATE it. It used to be nice and user friendly and now it’s super complicated and…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll — (Winter 2019 Session 1)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 6)

I had 43 people at this session! I was right about it being much calmer than other sessions since we’re deep into family vacation time. It went really well. I didn’t have to skip any songs and I planned everything perfectly. Of course, I forgot to update my PowerPoint presentation with our new song selections…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 6)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 5)

I had 62 people at this session. The least amount I’ve ever had but finally a more manageable number! I’m expecting even less at this week’s session. The first three weeks of August are a ghost town in our area. Everyone is on vacation. So this Wednesday might even be calm! (Haha!) Book: Duck Sock…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 5)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 4)

I had 95 people at this session. I hate to say this … but it was too many! The kids were a little unruly and hard to control with that many bodies. I also had some older siblings that were leading the pack which wasn’t helpful. But we pressed on! Book: Goldi Rocks and the…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 4)

Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 3)

I had 72 people at this session. The most yet! We might have to make this a continuous program … I read two books today because they were both short. The second book is more of an action book so I had the kids stand up and do the movements with me. Book: I Got…… Continue reading Dance, Rattle & Roll Story Time (Session 3)

Rainbow Ribbon Bells

I’ll be conducting a dance story time this summer (more on that later of course!) and I knew I wanted to do a story time heavy on props. My son and I attend a class at the local kids’ gym and they use these ribbon bells from Lakeshore: I thought they’d be so much fun…… Continue reading Rainbow Ribbon Bells
