This Monday was my very first RSF class, and the first class of 2017 at Robertson House. To say the kids were enthusiastic would be putting it mildly! We had a delightfully energetic and large group of kids, many of whom had some Rainbow Songs Foundation experience and were eager to get back into it. At one point, I instructed the kids to roll their fists in front of them to get ready for the next song, and before I had even finished explaining it, one boy’s eyes lit up and he proudly started singing, “Roly poly, roly poly, up, up, up!”
We sang a medley of two train songs, Down By the Station and I’ve Been Working On the Railroad, and by the end of it we had a proper train going with seven kids with their arms on each other’s shoulders! Most of the kids were in the age 3-6 range, but they were really good at helping the younger ones participate, and were very generous when it came to sharing an instrument or passing something around the circle. I think it’ll be a wonderful session!
