Reading about “Tressa the Musical Princess”

Today 14 little princesses came to have fun with Queen Ms. Julie! We made crowns and sceptors, danced around a Maypole, read Tressa the Musical Princess who “Saved the Day!”. We all ‘saved the day’ when we turned Dragon Eggs into Eggs with Golden Coins inside! Our eggs became wonderful shaker instruments which we played in many fun ways and even had a Princess Parade! We heard about the wicked step mother who made a poison apple for her step daughter princess to eat and the fairy god-mother who gave the princess the magic words “Obsiwana” to protect her from the poison. Then we promptly made our own “Poison” apple and said “Obsiwana” over it before playing a pass the apple game. We heard about the frog prince, who was looking for his princess and about Princess Golden who was changed into a GoldFish by a wicked witch and how her fairy godmother turned her into a beautiful Golden Fish who became the protector of all Princesses! She brought us a delicious snack of Goldfish Colors and a special Princess Pet to always remember her! We made pet collars with bells to easily find our pets if a wicked witch was near and then danced with those and ribbon streamers as parents joined us. We ended our time with a gentle rocking and resting song with mom’s and dad’s before leaving to go home.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom’s!

Pearls Before Breakfast

Joshua Bell is one of the world’s greatest violinists. His instrument of choice is a multimillion-dollar Stradivarius. If he played it for spare change, incognito, outside a bustling Metro stop in Washington, would anyone notice?….

Autism Speaks created a music video of the Five for Fighting song, “World”, which features images of autistic children and their families. It is a truly moving video and was the work of Bill Shea. The band is generously donating $0.49 to Autism Speaks for each time the video is viewed – the funding goes toward research studies to help find a cure. When you have a moment, please visit the link below to watch the video and pass it along to your friends and family.  They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but hopefully we can help them to surpass this goal.  http://www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com/videos/view/id/213154
