Say It Two Ways - Music and Dance
My favorite posts from last week were about teaching culture through music and dance!
Crafty Moms Share linked up her post on making tingsha bells, an instrument from Tibet as part of their Chinese New Year's celebration. I love tingsha bells and use them all the time as a yoga teacher. They are traditionally used in meditation.
Gift of Curiousity shared a post about her kids impromtu "Lion Dance" a dance that is traditionally part of the Chinese New Year's celebration. You know that kids have really soaked up the culture you've shared with them when their own pretend time involves cultural references. Also Chiquita and I love dancing.
On to the link-up!! How have you used music and dance to help children learn language and culture?
