Had a great day at one of my schools. Used a song called “What Will We Do When We Play Outside,” for one of my classes. Sang it to them a couple of times, and explained what a “zipper song” is. They were to make up their own lyrics. This song was great to integrate language arts and auditory skills. The auditory skills came in when I asked them what happened with the song when we used their lyrics. Some did say the rhythm changed to fit the words in and more. The kids had a great time with it! We then listened to the song PASSOVER (which was requested by one of the students). Some of the students got up to dance, and a couple of the teachers came in dancing. It was awesome!

My older students will be singing “Bleed Red,” by Ronnie Dunn for graduation, which was their suggestion. We will be doing it A capella since we are in the midst of Sefirat haOmer. They are doing such a beautiful job!

Today a busy day. I had Tot Shabbat this morning, going to my next schools shortly, then services at the Court At Palm Aire, then Tot Shabbat at Temple Beth Torah in Tamarac at 6PM. Join us!

Shabbat Shalom,
