Children love to be silly, and I have to tell you that as a grown up who spends a lot of my time being silly with them, it leads to a lot of laughter and fun. There is something very contagious about silliness, and I feel so fortunate that I get to partake in all the joy.
The Jewish holiday, “Tu B’shvat,” which is like a Jewish Arbor Day in appreciation of trees, is coming up, and I’ve been teaching many of my preschoolers and kindergarteners “The Tree Song” by Josh Miller. This song is the epitome of “silly,” as the children get to pretend to be trees in the song. The song is a hit with the kids as it incorporates movement and singing, and I must tell all of you that I have had the happiest week teaching this song.
So, of course, I want to share it, because I’ve been having just too much fun. Click HERE to go to Youtube to hear and watch the song. As you watch it, picture me jumping around with a gazillion kiddos, and you’ll know why I’ve been walking around with a smile on my face all week.
Happy Sunday, everyone. May it be loaded with your own silliness!
