Vivir La Vida!Posted by Megan Kirk
The second grade students came into music and movement class one day singing a Spanish song Vivir La Vida. We had been learning the Cumbia Dance in movement class and this was a perfect song to choreograph a partner dance to! The students and I were so excited to begin! Our voices began to carry down the hallway to where Senora Brenna’s seventh grade spanish class had also fallen in love with this catchy song and a natural collaboration began! The seventh graders focused on the verses and pronunciation of their Spanish words. The second graders focused on the chorus of the song and on their Cumbia Dance. In only two weeks we were ready to show the school what we had been working on in class! At assembly the second graders came running up to me “Mrs. Kirk, we are missing a student! Now someone will be without a partner!” Getting up on stage with the second and seventh graders was a true joy!
