One of the songs had a food fight, so we had to make signs and fake food from the song for the kids to carry around.
Casseroles, sardines, navy beans and collard greens...
buttered rolls, flying toast...
I made the menu on the right, and helped with the signs. Basically anything with letters, I helped. ;)
We got there pretty early so we could get a good seat...remember there are 220 students! We sat behind friends of ours from church/the big girls' form preschool teacher. I didn't even think to ask which side of the stage Mackenzie would be on when we sat down and by the time I remembered, the place was getting full, so of course we were sitting on the opposite side. :(
There's a benefit to both of our girls being pretty tall...they are always in the back row where I can see them. ;)
Mackenzie had been singing these songs around the house for weeks, so we new them a little already. They all did so well and definitely had the hand gestures and actions down!
Mackenzie didn't ask for any speaking or special rolls. She was content to just sing on the risers.
They stood by classes, so all of these kids are her friends in her class and they are all super sweet!
What made it even more fun was that their switch teacher (math/science), played the role of the applicant who tasted the pea.
Which in the play, means she got the job and became their new principal!
At their school, every grade level does a different musical performance, so I'll get to help with the 2nd grade musical 2 more times! ;) Next year, Mackenzie will do a Veterans Day performance for 3rd grade.
