RDB Presentation

Every month each kindergarten class has to memorize a short book.  The homeroom teacher for each class is in charge of facilitating the memorization and creating some sort of presentation. Sometimes the kids do hand movements or take turns talking, occasionally the kids hold props and dance around.

May just happened to be the end of the first term for this group of kindergartners. Keep in mind that each student pays about $1,500 a month for the 4.5 hours a day they spend at BIS. Well, to celebrate the end of the first term the parents were invited to the RDB presentation. The kids learned a few extra songs and dances and of course most of the teachers put in a little more time on memorizing and choreographing the presentation of the RDB books.

Let's be honest these kids are cute enough it doesn't matter what they say or do, the parents will be impressed/happy.

Hands down my favorite part of the presentation was the moment the kids were all on stage and this happened......

It was like a scene from Modern Family or a 90's sitcom. That moment when the parents stopped watching/listening and were 100% focused on capturing the action on film. I swear I could see Apple stock rising when all of the iPhones came out.

This is my class, Earth.

 Matthew just got back from a trip to Florida with his family. He got to say the line, "My family goes on vacation in the USA!" As he pulled the American flag out of his pocket like a magic trick. He was SO proud. I made him promise to keep the flag safe, then I sent it home with him.

Not that I am biased but they were the best. :)
You can tell that I was standing to the right of the stage. They did a great job and I was a VERY proud teacher!

 Joe was the MC. He did a great job! Then at the end of the "show", Joe surprised the parents with a little Cha Cha Slide lesson. He is a great dancer. The kids LOVE it and some of the parents even danced.

Seriously, the cuteness is off the charts here!

Here they are!
Each of the kids got these silly awards. Joe had to read them aloud so that we could all hear. They were REALLY funny. Some of my personal favorites were; Most Likely to Speak in Class,  MVP of the Class, Loudest Voice and Best Questioner. Even better if you knew the kids these awards were ridiculous.

All said and done the kids did a great job. I am a very proud teacher and am even more proud of my handsome husband for leading the show.
