Lola and Bubba

Meet my friends Lola and Bubba.

 Lola and Bubba are my new helpers during singing time.  They hold the songs and ideas on how to sing the songs for me. 

When the children sing really well Bubba says in his deep voice "YEAAAH" and a child gets to pull the next song we're going to sing. 

And Lola says "OOO LALA" and a child gets to pick what style we sing the song in. 
(Opera, Staccato, whisper, etc)

It was a hit for the kids. They love saying YEAAAH! and OOOO LALA with me when they reached in and picked out a slip of paper.

Fun Fun Fun with some bowling. 

I taped the words to a song they were learning on the board. 
I then took 8oz water bottles and arranged them in bowling pin formation. 
They first sang the song with all the words on the board. 
Then a child came up and rolled the the ball to see how many water bottles they can knock down. 
However many water bottles they knocked down was how many words they had to take off the board. 
We continued until very few words were left.  The kids loved every bit of it. 
Definitely a REPEAT!
