For the first time in five years, I had a class get on the stage in front of the rest of the school and perhaps eighty parents and actually perform their song.
Not even one child stood on stage covering his or her ears. Nor did anyone hide behind his or her third grade buddy.
A bunch of kids actually strategically positioned themselves near the microphones for maximum volume.
They were the eleventh act to perform and had had three stage practices, which I think helped a lot. But still: the Kindergartners were actually audible while rapping AND danced in front of an audience.
Wonders never cease, seriously.
