Today has been a very busy day for us! We had a joint birthday party for our 8 year old, going on 9, and our 2 year old, going on 3. It was a tea party, and we had lots of fun. Then we went swimming at a friend’s house this afternoon, so we didn’t get to do our Five Minute Friday until suppertime. We actually did it at a Korean restaurant while we waited for our food to come! For all you moms out there, this is a GREAT way to keep hungry kids occupied while waiting for food to come. By the time we got ourselves organized with paper and pens and found the word online, and then wrote for five minutes, our food was ready! It was perfect! So without further ado, here are our thoughts on the word “rhythm.”
Age 8 – (She’s taking up two pages now, so I’ve just photographed one of them but here’s the whole deal):
Rhythm means beat. tic tic tic tic tic.
Try to do a steady beat. Dance to the rhythm. boom boom boom.
If you have a routine and follow it, then you don’t, then you are out of rhythm. I tap my foot to the rhythm, and clap my hands to the rhythm, swirl around and nod my head to the rhythm. The rhythm I really like is the beat of my heart. You can count to a rhythm 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.
What kind of rhythm is your favorite? I love all sorts of different rhythms. I like the rhythm of me playing the piano.
(She likes writing “And STOP” because I usually do when I participate over at Mommynificent.com.)
Age 6 as dictated:
1 2 3 – that is a rhythm.
Rhythm is like: 1 2 3 4 5 6. 6 beats. All around. Rhythm is walking, not running.
(I like the little backwards music notes on the side!)
Age 2 (We forgot to have her dictate her picture when we got home because she was WAY too tired, but here’s her picture. She was pretty proud of herself for successfully drawing a heart and a rainbow all by herself for the first time!):
