Today we are using scarves, Streamers, and ribbons when we have our daily dance party! This week in preparation for St. Patrick's day we have been talking about Ireland and its traditions. We are talking about vocabulary that is associated with this holiday and with Ireland. Like Blarney Stone, The color Green, Emerald, Leprechauns, Fairies, Rainbows, Clovers,etc.
The children were very interested in Irish step dancing, so we thought we would learn a few steps and add some streamers to make it look like a dancing rainbow in our classroom. So not only are we moving our feet, we are also moving our arms.
As teachers we taught ourselves a few step using various you tube videos. Some steps were harder than we thought just by looking at them! What a great workout for us teachers!
We love dancing in our classroom, it has been fun to learn a few new steps and to add some color to the room as we dance!
