A teacher’s educational fingerplay song is teaching TikTokers how to make dumplings in an adorable way.
Miss Katie, who is originally from Taiwan, grew up singing this sweet “dumpling song” — and now, she’s passing it down to her own students.
“Here’s a Chinese song I used to sing as a kid!” Miss Katie wrItes in the caption of her video. “It describes a shortened process of making dumplings: fry the eggs, chop the carrots, wrap the dumpling, boil the water, and eat!”
“I view making music for children to be truly radical, beautiful work. Through my songs, I promote social-emotional learning, tenderness, creativity, and justice,” Miss Katie’s website explains.
After working as a professional musician and teacher for several years, creating content ranging from on-camera lessons to in-person kids’ classes, Miss Katie now teaches in virtual classes for preschools around the country.
“Through my work, I want young children to feel the way Mister Rogers made me feel growing up: valued, creative, and seen,” Miss Katie writes. “I love what I do here. I hope you do too.”
‘I love this AND I was educated…’
Based on the hundreds of comments Miss Katie’s video has received, it’s obvious her work is being loved and appreciated around the world.
“This is ADORABLE 🥺,” one user wrote.
“Their little voices are so happy and sweet!” another user commented.
“I love this AND I was educated,” lauded another user.
“I have so much faith in future generations,” shared one user.
