That Little Old Lady(ies) Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything Returns to Trinity School

Last week I joined a host of Trinity first-grade parents to watch what is now a Trinity tradition: The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything.  This year we had two Ladies in each class.

Mrs. Woodrum had trained and taught her charges well.  They knew their parts, they knew their percussion instruments.

The Almost-Scary tale of a Pumpkin's encounter with this famous Lady was acted out by each of the classes, and the drama was accented with the distinctive sounds of the timpani, the cymbals, the bells, and the glockenspiel.

What I love about this story is the way the students learn about the percussion instruments and use them to tell the story of the indomitable lady and the scary pumpkin.  The repetition and patterns are part of the learning and part of the fun.
