Rhythm Sticks!

Thursday, March 31, 2011 by Teacher Talk

I teach several play classes at Gymboree Play and Music. One of my favorites is Music II. The other day in class as I was presenting the style of music we'd been talking about that day, I brought out the rhythm sticks. We were going to be tapping a steady beat! A precious little girl who attends class each week with her Mom stood up and said "rhythm sticks!' It was so special and awesome to hear her since she rarely speaks in class. Not only did she find the courage to speak in front of a group of about 15 people, she also had learned the name of the instrument! I was so proud of her, the whole room erupted with applause and she was just beaming! We have a lot of fun in Music classes and we're learning so much as well.  An essential part of what we do at Gymboree Play and Music is teaching to the whole child. I am so proud to be a part of Gymboree Play and Music in Houston!
