Teacher sings Chinese ‘dumpling song’ with her preschool students in adorable TikTok: ‘The cutest thing I’ve ever seen’

A teacher’s educational fingerplay song is teaching TikTokers how to make dumplings in an adorable way.

Chicago-based children’s songwriter and teaching artist Miss Katie (@misskatiesings) gained nearly 50,000 views and 580,000 likes when she uploaded the sing-along to her account.

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!”

According to Miss Katie’s bio, she started making videos at the start of quarantine in order to provide supportive music content for children stuck at home.

“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.
