In today's class we reviewed "Hara Ganga Jataadhaara" bhajan that we started last class. The kids did a wonderful job singing it. We might be able to complete it in our next class.

Thank you to all the kids that submitted the homework by sending recording of "Choti choti gaiyan" song. Each of them did a fabulous job. Thank you to the parents for your support to your children as they are learning. It takes courage to sing alone and be comfortable and I am super proud of the kids how well they are learning.

Request to parents:
Please have the children keep their videos on at all times and stay unmuted during the bhajan class. The class itself is 10 minutes long and it helps if I have their full attention at all times.

You can find the audio of the bhajan in the audio library section and also attached below.
Please have the kids practice it at home.

We started off the class by revising the meaning of the song "Choti Choti Gaiyan" we are learning. The kids did a good job remembering it.
We completed learning the full song and the kids did a wonderful job singing it.

Homework
Please have them practice this song and send in audio/video recording of them singing it. It would be a great way to ensure they have it secured, before moving on to a new one next class.

Happy New Year!! 

We continued to practice and learnt the second stanza of "Choti Choti Gaiyan" song that we had started last class. 
Looks like the kids are getting a hang of this faster song, and they are doing a great job picking it up.

Please find the recording in the Audio library, it has also been sent in the parents' WhatsApp group.
Encourage your kids to practice it, have them sing it to you!

Today was the last class of 2020!
We continued to practice and learn "Choti Choti Gaiyan" song that we had started last week. Please find the recording attached to this post and also in the Audio library.

Homework:
Please practice the song, we have learnt the first stanza in the class today.
The kids were asked to join about 10 minutes early, so that we can revise Aarti and Assembly slokas as a warm up before we begin the Bhajan class promptly at 10 am.

Though virtual, it has been great to connect with the kids.
We will continue to be virtual for the next half of the year and hope for continued engagement by the kids.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Holiday Season and a fantastic 2021!!

In this class we practiced the second stanza "Suravara Varshini" by doing a breakout session. The kids are doing well, in spite of a quick 10 minute virtual lesson and the challenging pronunciation of this song. Cannot be more proud of them! 

We will start the 3rd stanza "Ayi Jagadamba" during the next class on November 22nd.
Thank you for the continued support of the parents, in making sure kids are practicing at home.

Thanks again to the kids who were able to join 10 minutes early to the class today. The kids sang first stanza of Aarti "Om Jai Jagadish Hare" and we discussed the meaning of the song. Please encourage the kids to continue to join the class early, we plan to recite assembly shlokas and Aarti in that time.

During the class we did the breakout rooms again and practiced reciting the second stanza of Mahishasura Mardhini strotram "Suravara Varshini". As a homework, the kids were all asked to practice reciting the first 2 stanzas every day during the upcoming Navrathri Festival. 

Wishing everyone very best for the festive season and hoping that Maa Durga bestowes her blessings on each and every one of us.

Happy to see that some of the kids are joining in a little before 10 a.m. We have been doing assembly shlokas during that time and also spending time understanding the meaning of them. Please encourage your children to join/continue to join at 9:50 so we can recite shlokas and begin the class promptly at 10 a.m.

In today's class, we started learning the second stanza of Ayi Giri Nandini "Suravaravarshini". The kids heard it twice and then we did the breakout rooms to focus on pronunciation.

As a homework, the kids were asked to use the audio library to practice the second stanza. They will need to submit their audio recordings before Saturday October 3rd in the format "mm2_<studentname>" at this location
