Drew's Sister has been practicing for her first tap dance performance! She is going to dance to "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth." Her tap class has been practicing their dance for several weeks now, and the teacher sent home the dance steps, requesting that we practice at home.
I love to dance, and have always loved to dance. So, of course this homework was right up my ally! Drew's Sister and I, for about the last week or so, have been practicing after dinner her tap dance routine. I will say the instructions, and then she will do the dance move. It goes something like, "Bam. Bam. Bam, bam together. Bam. Bam. Bam, bam together. Jump out. Jump in. Sing, If only I could whistle!" (It sounds rather silly as I write it out, but I promise, Drew's Sister understands!)
Yesterday as we were playing in the morning, Drew's Sister started doing her dance moves, and Drew said, "Bam! Bam! Together! Whistle!," and then imitated doing a whistle. It was so amazing, since we have never worked on this with him at all. He learned all of this language on his own, through incidental listening! Just amazing.
