Rudolf the reindeer like you've never heard before...

Well maybe you have but this was a new one on us.

For their 'Christmas Program' at the Gagie Preschool the kids learnt various carols and festive songs. Both of us were able to attend and it was lovely! Toby's class did a show in the morning which was mainly the head teacher singing and the kids doing the actions and concentrating on staying on the stage. Charlotte's class were a lot louder and it was amazing to see what a difference a year or two makes!

Charlotte has been singing a lot of the songs over the holidays and her favourite seems to be 'Rudolf the red nosed reindeer'. It cracks us up every time she sings it because school taught them extra lines as follows:

Rudolf the red nosed reindeer,
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw it,
you would even say it glowed.
{Like a lightbulb!}

All of the other reindeer,
used to laugh and call him names
{Like Pinocchio!}
They never let poor Rudolf,
join in any reindeer games.
{Like monopoly!}

Then one foggy Christmas eve,
Santa came to say
{Ho ho ho!}
Rudolf with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight

Then all the other reindeer loved him,
and they shouted out with glee
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!
{Like Abraham Lincoln!}

Her cute American accent just adds to the entertainment value!

It's not a religious school so they don't do a nativity show but they do learn songs from all the holidays including a Jewish song: The dreidel song and the spanish version of Jingle Bells. I love the diveristy by children are being exposed to at such a young age.

It was so good to see both kids up on stage and so proud of both of them for staying put for the whole 30 minute shows!
