Not just a cheeky thing to say about my lesson plans and the general structure of my school days recently!
Each year, our kindergarteners perform a program for their families and support systems. Our amazing music teacher (who teaches the songs and the choreography) provides the script, which is often quite wordy. Today, over a glass of wine, my teammate and I rewrote parts of the script to make it kindergarten friendly. The show is Wing It!, about baby birds who are afraid to leave their nest and learn to fly. Note: some of the words from this rewrite are from the original script of the musical Wing It. I do not own any of this material! Enjoy, dear reader.
Growing up is frightening but you don’t do it alone
We all have lots of help around, we’re never on our own
Aunt and uncles, sisters and brothers
Friends, neighbors, and plenty of others
Teachers, parents and all of the rest
Will help us all become our very best
We have learned to try, we have put our minds to it
And now we believe that we can really do it
We’re ready to fly, we know we’ll be great
And when we are through, we all celebrate
