Talented Kids

I have some of the most talented students here at Dover Elementary.  I love it when they share their talent with me!  This is a sweet 4th grader.  She is such a hard worker and is playing so great.

Time Signature & Frogs!

Last week our Word of the Week was Time Signature.  This is a brand new word that we have never learned before!  Here is the song that we use to help us remember!

In 2nd Grade we also read a great book called Jump Frog Jump.

And, played along on a super cool instrument called the
Frog Guiro.
Mrs. Bryant's Class had a special friend who wanted to join in.  :)
Then, we sang 5 Little Speckled Frogs with some neat jumping frogs!  Check out this video to see the fun we had!
