Let me set the scene for you…My music classroom as a rug in the middle with colored squares surrounding a music staff in the middle. There are enough squares for an entire class to see me when seated. The Prek-4th grade use the rug and the 5-8 grades use chairs. Today’s last class was Kindergarten and they came in with smiles on their faces and very quietly as well. I was impressed by this and made a note in my book next to me. Here’s the conversation that ensued across the rug as I wrote. (I’ve changed the names) Tony: “This is my square right?” Jessica: “Yes, that’s your square. Shh.” Tony: (pause for thought and observation of his surroundings) “Why is my square between 2 girls??” Jessica: (without missing a beat) “So that they can watch you and you will be good.” HAHAHA! I let out a half-laugh/blurt/snot out the nose thing…Bhahoh! Then I just jumped into warmups and tried to cover it up. Best part is…she’s totally right.
