Every Friday, we have "Performance Day" in the Lucky Duck classroom. The children are encouraged to practice and memorize our weekly poem which they receive on Monday, to perform on Friday. Usually, there are two or three students who are ready to perform.
this poem really got the kids going. We had lots of fun with it and used different voices to perform. The following four videos are just a sampling of the children who practiced and recited for us.
AWAY UP HIGH
Away up high in the apple tree.
Two red apples smiled at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could.

Boy, were they GOOD!
Katja and Kate using their "mad" voices. Gabriel and Silver using "normal" voices.
Ethan and Tristan using "opera" voices.
Lizbeth, Chloe, and Brooklynn using "sad" voices.
So cute. Memorizing is a great and essential skill for children to acquire.
