An auspicious day to be sure - February 22nd, 2022, 2-22-2022 is also happening on a TUEsday!
One of the most wonderful things that has come from the pandemic are some amazing friendships forged online. Kathy was teaching in Japan when we met and we have chatted many times about collaborating as we both love playful music making. Kathy wrote this fun song to celebrate the occasion. Many thanks to her for sharing it! Here are Kathy and I zooming Saturday!
Kathleen and her husband Charles Vilina are co-authors of Beehive, Magic Time, Everybody Up, and the ELTon award-winning course Oxford Discover, published by Oxford University Press. Kathleen's two CDs for young learners, Kathy Kampa's Special Days and Holidays and Jump Jump Everyone, build English language skills through music and movement while nurturing creativity and imagination.
This song would be perfect to have 2-3 small groups create 4 or 8-beat body percussion ostinato patterns to accompany the song! You might want to wear your tutu or have a dance party with your class at 2:22 PM!
