DAY 127

Day 127 “Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high….”

I spent the day with Levar Burton. I led 10 (count them – TEN!) half-hour music classes with K and 1st graders, and showed each class the same episode of Reading Rainbow. 🙂 I sang the theme song (sometimes they sang) 10 times, and since it was about a barn dance, we spent the last 5-8 minutes dancing – making circles and, well, circling, clapping and stomping, yelling “Yee-Haw!”  Yessiree, ten times. And do you know what? I didn’t mind. I’m so glad it was Reading Rainbow and it was music. I studied the illustrations in the books they showed (since I’m an art student now), and enjoyed all of it. Best.Kids’.Show.Ever.

One Arabic boy saw the animals coming out of the barn at the beginning and said, “Is animals real?” I replied that those were real animals. “How come we no see them?” I responded that it was because they were on television. Seemed to suffice. Interesting.
