Fall Kickoff - Week 2

Happy Math & Music Monday!

I can’t believe our girls have been in school almost a month now. Time is just moving so very fast. Last week was crazy busy for our family. I was traveling for work and thankfully my incredible family held down the fort. I am so excited for ALL the super fun things we have coming for Ally Dog Depot! You won’t want to miss them! This is the second week of our “fall kickoff,” so let’s move on to our next Math and Music video… it’s personally one of my favorites and actually the very first song written for our All Aboard, the Music and Math Connection school program.

Fun Fact

“The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 turn out.”   – Bill Gates

Wow, what a quote. Like I said, I have been traveling a lot lately for our wonderful business, and it’s just amazing how no matter who I meet, this quote continues to be true. I can meet with literally anyone, and as I talk with them, they always have a story about their childhood that has impacted their entire life. For me, this is inspiring. It’s what keeps me going. These early years are SO important. This is why we do what we do. To encourage families to make Math and Music a part of their everyday lives. Trust me, I’m not perfect at it… but I work daily to be intentional with my words and actions… because I know they WILL have a lasting impact.

Ok… Let’s get on to this week’s video of the week!   This week’s video is… “The Ally Dog Song!”

I love this one for SO many reasons. It’s close to my heart because it’s about our precious Ally Dog that we sadly lost almost a year ago, but it also is a super fun song and helps children experience and learn more about sequential order. (A very important math and life skill)

I thought it would be fun to take a look back at us doing the Ally Dog Video activities… Click here: (Ally Dog Song – Sneak Peek Blog  AND/OR  Ally Dog Extension Activities Blog) to see us in action.

 Don’t worry, the fun doesn’t stop here… Be sure to follow us this week on our Facebook Page and Instagram! We have some fun NEW extension activities planned! You won’t want to miss it!

Thanks for stopping by!

We hope you all have a wonderful Math and Music Monday or even a wonderful Math and Music WEEK!
