Sometimes a song just happens. These is one of those songs. I was waiting for children in the next room to line up and come in for music. The teachers in this particular school are amazing, and itís always a joy to hear the way they talk to the children. Words matter, and tone matters, and intention matters, and these teachers have mastered them all. As I heard the rustling of bodies lining up and nearing the doorway I spontaneously started singing as they entered. I never cease being amazed at how magically a song can instantly put children in right frame of mind, and set them up for what will come next...and so we had a wonderful time! Transition songs help set children up for success. As the old saying goes, if you have just the right song for children, you never have to give instructions! So true!
I want every child to feel they can sing, and that they have a voice to contribute to the group. If I can accomplish that, I have done my job!
