That’s where you can come in and ask a few questions.
Today we will do a fun activity with the shakers we made at the beginning of the week or other shakers which we have. The music will start slowly and gradually get faster and faster!
Now let's go back to our planting and growing theme! We can do an action song.
Now we'll finish with some more movement on Funky Friday!
