Instrument Play on Snow Days!

Instrument Play on Snow Days!

Hello!

 

This time of year presents a particular challenge since 5th grade Instrumental is once a week at all 7 of my buildings.  With our snow/ice/cold weather days, I have not seen some of my students in 3 weeks!!  Please encourage students on days off to review and work on material that they are familiar with in their band and string books:

Band– in books up through Page 11

Strings– in books up through Page 14

Progress for Classes so far
