It's just so pretty!

Ok, so this isn't really embarrassing but I had to share! I have been teaching pre-schoolers tap for several years now. In the youngest class, ages 3 and 4, it can be quite a challenge to get a group of students to participate, never mind trying to get them all to do the right step on the right foot.

One of my favorite examples of this came about halfway through the year last year. There were about 20 students all 3 and 4 years old. Most of them were following along fairly well with only minor lapses in attention. However, one girl didn't seem to be at all interested in class. She had stood playing with her skirt the whole class. When I reminded her she needed to practice tapping her toes she looked at me with the most innocent look, with her hands full of her skirt and said, "But it's just so pretty!" How can argue with that?!
