Since we’re learning about France, we sing the ‘Days of the Week’ song in French. Children are excited to add new words – real words in a foreign language – to a song they already know.
The ‘Helper of the Day’ gets to hold the pointer and lead children in the calendar and weather. It’s a big job. It involves left to right, number and letter recognition, and of course singing. We often add challenges. Often.
The ‘Helper of the Day’ decided she wanted to sing the ‘Days of the Week’ all by herself – in French!
These are the moments that make me want to teach 24/7 forever.
