I headed back to Newark for my first morning at Sara Ward pre-school where I played 5 sets to all the kids, all the Sara Ward teachers, and several teachers from outside that school.  I had to keep things the same, since I will be explaining what the heck I’m doing to these teachers.  Of course, we share quite a few favorites – Bear Hunt, Tottie Tah, etc, but they a good templates for the teachers to create from. 


Rhyming seems a little foreign to some of the kids…  “What sounds like ‘dog’?” gets the response, “ruff, ruff….”, so we hit a few bumps in the process… 


After 5 sets, I began to think, “Stop me if I’ve done this one for you already…”


Back to Bethlehem, and another early lift-off tomorrow.
