Thursday was a rainy day, so we stayed inside and focused on meditation and movement with music. To start, Olly had the class do some stretching and breathing exercises. This helped the everyone to focus. Next, we played a series of songs such as Baby Shark, Ring around the Rosy, Tooty Ta and Frozen.
The kids were really enjoyed singing along, and were especially enthusiastic about songs they could dance to. Songs with clear directions such as Tooty Ta kept their attention best. After an hour or so of singing and dancing, the class was visibly tired and ready for lunch. Although a few students were a little restless, mostly everyone did a great job of staying on task and participating.
