Yesterday was hilarious! As in every class ever, we started listening to Christmas songs to get ready for Christmas. In my 2nd grade class at Padre Poveda we’ve been practicing “Holly Jolly Christmas” with the kids, because they are going to sing it on stage for the Christmas show that the school is having. In order to keep them interested, we’ve also been playing other songs. Here are some examples:
“I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” – Since the kids had never heard this one, it was just me singing it to them with this youtube video…. BUT THEY LOVED IT!
Even though they loved the hippopotamus song, this one was the crowd-pleaser.
They LOVE the rock version of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” I had them on the floor playing air guitar, jumping around, and even playing the air drums. I jumped around and sang with them too of course! Even the shiest kids were jammin’!!
