Nothing Beats Barometers, #490

Standard

My daughter’s 2nd grade class has been learning all about weather over the last couple of weeks.  Very wisely, her teacher has been working with her students on a musical production called “The Weather Show.”  It is a darling little 40 minute-ish musical written by educators.  The play has ensured my daughter’s weather knowledge and even helped her with language skills while she was at it!

Yesterday was performance day, and boy was I am impressed with this group of 2nd graders.  They were fantastic!  A picture says a thousand words, so the best way to show you how amazing they all were is to show you all the photos.

Look at the beautiful set…

These are the 2nd graders…

The meteorologists….

Here it is raining cats and dogs…..

The wind…

Warm and Cold Air Masses….

Rainbows…

Now for my daughter!  I was so proud of her.  She had so many lines to remember, as she was one of the leads in the show.  I could read the expression on her face.  She was so nervous, but she rose above it, followed through and got the job done.  Here are some pictures of her in her big performance.  She’s the one in the red and white polka dotted rain coat.

Checking her watch….

Talking to the wind sisters…..

Feeling so happy…..

Singing her big duet, “Nothing Beats Barometers”

Here she is after the performance with her beloved teacher….both of them beaming with pride!

Of course, my husband videotaped this performance, and “Nothing Beats Barometers” sung by my little girl and her classmate is my song of the day.  Click HERE to go to Youtube and hear their amazing rendition of this very sweet song.

I am so proud of my little girl for stepping up to the plate and for her entire class, too.  They are an amazing group of talented and hard-working children and really deserve big pats on the back for a job well done.  Bravo, kiddos!

About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
