My kindergarten students have entered into an exciting partnership with Brooklyn Collaborative on creating a student ASL recording of Dear Theodosia from the musical HAMILTON. We've been rehearsing a section of the song - seen beautifully interpreted by Brandon Kazen-Maddox in the above recording - containing these lyrics;
You will come of age with our young nation
We'll bleed and fight for you, we'll make it right for you
if we lay a strong enough foundation
We'll pass it on to you, we'll give the world to you
And you'll blow us all away
Yeah, you'll blow us all away
It is incredible to witness how quickly my young students pick it up and infuse it with feeling and emotion. I look forward to sharing the finished product when it is ready.
