Today in the hallway, the children were engaging in musical fun. While exploring the instruments in the hallway the children were connecting musical sounds to books that were placed in the hallway for them to read. They were also learning how to find what instrument was in the hallway by looking it up in the book. Children were taking turns and helping one another on how to use the instruments correctly.
