Days and Preschool Days, Too:
A treasury of anecdotes culled from my work
and play as a preschool worker and an elementary school after- school
THE ABC BALLET
Friday I found two 3 year-old girls holding
on, one each, to the two wooden posts that form the front doorway of
our gazebo play area. The two girls were holding opposite legs out,
too, at almost a 90 degree angle.
"What are you doing?" I asked one of
"Ballet!" came the answer, which
should have been obvious.
The 2 friends started to sing the ABCs as each
continued to extend one leg and then bring it up and down. They sang
the song over and over. Then they both ran to a spotnear the back of
the gazebo and ran back still singing, resuming their leg flourishes.
I wondered if a children's musical producer
had ever thought of the ingenious idea my friends were performing spontaneously
before me: "The ABC Ballet".
