Para Carner Perry
Just thanking God for still being alive and well at this time. The journey has been real, there were lots of questions and what if’s this past year. Students were happy to see and touch each other with limits. God was and is still cleaning us up from the inside out. I am so thankful that I can go to work and enjoy what I do for children. The students gave me great joy this year because they All exceeded my expectation. There was limited singing with mask and LOTS of percussion going on in Ms. Perry’s music class. Students particularly enjoyed learning about GO, GO Music which is now the official (cultural) music of Washington DC and Crazy Legs Dancing, Step Teams and Drumlines. Just using all of these hooks or tools in my bag to get students to want to learn. Grades K-3 favorite song: Lift Every Voice and Sing. You Tube Three Kings Sings Lift Every Voice and Sing and you will understand why they love and know it. Grades four and five loved the version by Committed when the song was finished children were clapping and shouting HALLELUAH, PRAISE THE LORD that made me smile and shout as well. I just wanted everyone in the school to learn the first verse, mission accomplished.
