It's sticks and drums month!

We've been playing with sticks and drums all month long.  We started out by reading a story, Max Found Two Sticks, and tapped on several different kinds of things -- just like Max does in the story.

Then we tapped and sang with our claves (CLAH-vey).  We'll keep adding on to the alphabet sequence once we've mastered a few simple moves.

Then we talked about how ANYTHING can be a drum as we read Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb, and tapped out the story on shoe boxes one day, and beach balls the next!

See how many "drums" and "sticks" you can find around the house...
