Sing Books, its own reward (over the moon for a little girl and “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon”)
Posted March 17, 2012on:
Every class I get to visit reveals its own, unique personality. One aspect of this is that each class has its own favorite songs and I love it when the children make requests.
In Ms. Anctil’s class last week, the most darling girl (with curly hair) asked me to bring “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon,” for the next visit. I was excited for this request because “Moon” is one of my personal top favorite songs, but it doesn’t receive that many requests, I imagine, because it is a ballad. Mostly the most requested songs are lively.
So I made this note to myself to remember and the curly hair on the smiley face helped me remember who asked:
This is all to express my delight in getting the Sing Books with kids. Today’s little experience is truly an example that the work is its own reward. The look on this little girls face charmed me all the way over the moon. I made eye contact with her a couple times during the song and I will never forget her smile and how glad she was that I remembered her and the song she wanted to hear. Nothing could have bought that and I am grateful to have had the honor of being there in that moment.
