The KPod Christmas Performance

Those of you who read this blog on a regular basis (Hi Mom!) will probably remember that Reagan's school is divided into learning pods.  Today, the KPod (comprised of the two kindergarten classes at her school) put on their second performance of the year... the Christmas Concert!

Ryan and I knew most of the songs that the kids performed for us today, as Reagan has been practicing them NON STOP for the past couple of weeks! Even though we somewhat knew what to expect, we were still very surprised at just how much these little kids have learned in the past month or so.

The boys and girls were all dressed in their Christmas best, and they were excited to perform for all of the families this morning, and then again for the entire school this afternoon.  After taking their places on the rafters, they began the show by singing "The Teddy Bear Twist" with their favourite stuffed animals. You can watch a portion of the song below!  If you double click on the video, it will take you to my YouTube page where you can then click to watch it in full screen.

Next, it was time for the "ABC's of Christmas" and "Rock Around The Christmas Tree".  Reagan is holding up the letter "R" for the ABC's of Christmas" picture, and she is front and center during "Rock Around the Christmas Tree".

The kids then moved down off of the risers to take their places on the floor with a partner to do the Cha-Cha-Cha.  

When the performance was over, all of the parents took advantage of the moment and took tons of pictures of our adorable children.  Reagan was happy to pose with a few of her BFFs!

It truly was a spectacular performance, and we were all completely impressed!  I asked Reagan to tell me about her experience on the big stage, and this was what she said,
"I loved it because not just all the families but also the whole school got to see it.  We had been working very hard for our kindergarten performance today.  It was exciting because it was the second time that we had performed in the gym, and it was fun to show everyone what we can do now.  I felt really excited and I think all the parents felt really happy to see all the stuff that we had learned!"
I couldn't have said it any better myself!  Looks like I've got a future blogger on my hands!
