We’re lucky enough to have four classes from Mars Elementary included in Region 12’s Holiday Extravaganza, Singing with Rudolph program yesterday and today. They are all kindergarten classes and they loved it!
Rudolph starts out asking the kids to show their antlers and to laugh like a reindeer. This breaks the VC ice and gets the kids moving & interacting. Rudolph sings songs like Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and Jingle Bells. Rudolph also asks the students some questions such as: What do elves learn in school? The elf-abet! This is a short but excellent example of getting the students to interact from the very beginning of the session. They answer questions, do motions, sing, and participate the whole way through!
This is a fun and easy program that introduces kids and teachers to videoconferencing in a low-key format. It hooks them on VC to try other programs. Thank you to Shane & Roxanne for sharing this program with us!
