Hot Cross Buns

Emerson & Elliot working together
to find the right keys for Hot cross buns

During the Easter week the children learned about the song 
Hot, Cross Buns.  

After singing a few times the children worked on reading and writing the Ideograph for the song.  Ideographs are symbols in place of the song phrases.  This exercise helps children develop print  and phonological awareness ( sounds as symbols).  As we sang, some children chose to practice  the solfa (music hand signs) while the others played it on the piano. They each had a turn to track and draw their own Ideographs. 

Did you know that Hot Cross Buns are traditionally baked
and given as gifts around Eater Time in the earlier days?
