Today the Bright Bunnies enjoyed some echo and imitation activities as we sang, danced, and played. Imitation and echo are powerful teaching tools throughout our lives. Think of those times sitting around the campfire learning new songs, repeating words and phrases after the teacher in school, or copying steps to a new dance. To learn the three-beat rhythm of the minuet, we experienced the rhythm by repeating familiar three-syllable words, reproduced the rhythm by playing it as body percussion, then learned the movements now and will help them when they study an instrument or sing or play in an ensemble later on.
