Activity Reflection 4 enjoyed the sessions. Other children got very excited when I requested to repeat the finger play a sign that they were excited by the activity and did not want it to come to an end. The children also reflected a high level of organization and engagement during both activities learning the sequence of the song and finger play. The children had the opportunity to sing along with the guide as well as dance and listen, but there were no instruments in the activities as I figured they would have required more attention in handling.

The children managed to memorize the names of their peers and also learned the keywords mentioned in the finger play as they repeated the words as I interacted with each.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
