Nice work on all of our pieces today! We look forward to seeing you December 1 for our next rehearsal!

Pickle Song/Monkey Song Challenge:

It’s time for the Pickle Song/Monkey Song Challenge!
Print your Pickle Song/Monkey Song Coloring sheet.
Color in a “pickle” each time you successfully play a Pickle Song, and a “monkey” each time you successfully play a Monkey Song. When it is complete, bring it to class! I’ll ask you to play a Pickle Song and a Monkey Song for the class, and you’ll get the chance to earn your very own MONKEY!

Focus on these activities:

(1) PLAY the Pickle Song!
