Kindergarteners and First Graders LOVE pretend play. Oh, who am I kidding? Me too! One of our new favorite activities is pretending to go to Prince and Princes School. We listen and move to Hungarian Dance #6 by Brahms.
Here's the story: Once upon a time there was a strict but beeeeeeautiful queen who ran a school for princes and princesses. There she taught them how to walk, bow and and wave like royalty. As soon as the queen isn't looking all the princes and princess act silly. Finally, unable to control their silliness the strict but beeeeeeeautiful queen joins in they jolly dance.
We are going to tell this story to parents at our annual spring concert this month. Look at the beautiful crowns they made in art class!
