Theresa’s Story About Her Song That Had an Impact with an ESL Kindergarten Student
An Inspirational Story from Theresa:
I teach in a Catholic School in New York City. An Asian student who spoke little English would always try his best to learn the songs and finger plays every day. One of the songs we sang everyday was, “Whisper A Prayer in the Morning.”
Here are the lyrics:
Whisper a prayer in the morning
whisper a prayer at noon
whisper a prayer in the evening,
to keep your heart in tune.
God answers prayer in the morning
God answers prayer at noon
God answers prayer in the evening
so keep your heart in tune.
One day, in perfect English, he told me that before he goes to sleep at night, he hears that song in his head. He said it helps him to go to sleep.
