This is us shooting little plastic frogs into the "pool" on the song Five Green and Speckled Frogs. Children love to combine play with songs!

Dancing Drum Workshop
I learned to play the djembe hand drum, BOOM bah and the Djun-djun with sticks. These are West Africa instruments. We did dances, claps, and the drums to character education songs in Drumming Up Character. I'm so excited our counselor, in charge of the PBIS (Positive Behavior in Schools) curriculum is going to order the program for me! It has a dvd and complete character ed instruction. I will teach the song and dances. The kids will love it and learn a lot about good character in the process!
The drum circle included the "tick-tock" blocks and maracas. It was so much fun and I think the kids would love it! I hope to find some money via a grant. I don't know how or where, but I bet it would make a big difference for some kids.
