Grace's "One World" Concert

The theme at  Grace's school this past year was "One World."  Throughout the school year the children have learned about different countries, cultures and languages.  The school performed a "One World" concert where each class sang a variety of songs from different countries.  The kindergarten classes performed two songs from Mexico (in Spanish!) and danced a traditional Mexican Hat Dance.  In art class they made these sombreros to wear during their one of their songs.

You can see Grace in the picture above.  She is kneeling in the front row and wearing the blue and white striped dress.  The music teacher asked that all of the children wear the colors found in our world....blue, white and/or green.

Here is Grace and the other kindergarten students performing the Mexican Hat Dance.  Ole.

At the end of the concert all of the classes joined together on stage to sing three songs.  Can you find Grace?!

One of the songs was performed in sign language.  It was beautiful to watch.

I am so glad that this years school theme focused on the world because Grace truly  loves geography.  Grace, all on her own, has learned the 50 states and their capitals as well as where they are located on a map.  Grace has also learned all of the countries in the continents of South America and Africa and most of Europe.  Some of her very favorite books to read are world atlases and she loves to study globes too.  :)

We cannot stop visiting and re-visiting this series of photos from Gracie's 'One World Concert'!

We are LOVING seeing Our Girl up on stage with her classmates...almost as good as being there but not as good by far.

Grace is shining bright (but she ALWAYS is!!) and joyful and sweet!

Very Proud Maddy & Poppy Here!
Love to Our Little Maine Family.

Another proud moment for Grace and for the whole family. She will surely remember this celebration of union and communion with her classmates and the world community.
And when she goes to Mexico and Spain, she will have this experience to share.

Congratulations, Grace, and hola!

Kudos to Grace's school for teaching about "One World", starting with these young ones who are so open and impressionable.

Great pictures! I love how Grace has her chest stuck out and her hand stretched up as high as the clouds. Thank you Rebecca for posting these pictures. Rebecca's first year of being a kindergarten Mom was amazing. Rebecca continued the learning play experiences with Jack and Eve while being Supermom to Grace with daily lunches, snacks, volunteering, show and tell, and all the other wonderful learning experiences! You are special and remarkable Rebecca

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
