First day of school went great!
4th, 5th and 6th grade:
Gave each student a blank nametag. Along with their name, they had to draw the note that matched their personality. These were the descriptions:
Whole Note Personality~ One who enjoys sitting back and watching. One who can do one activity for a long time without being bored.
Quarter Note Personality~ One who goes along with everyone else. Is very dependable and steady.
Eighth Note Personality~ One who gets bored very easily. Doesn't like to sit still very long. Enjoys being where all the action is.
It was amazing to see them think about themselves in that way. Can't wait to see if they really who they think they are!
2nd and 3rd grade:
Sang 2 different Name Game Songs. The favorite was Shoo-li-loo. We also sang Down By The Bay. They loved the guitar accompaniment!
Kinder and 1st:
Sang Make New Friends, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Came up with lots of "on the fly" stuff to keep our hands busy. :)
Now to make plans for next week. I have just enough time as their sub to complete one entire unit. I'm thinking of doing Lego Rhythms with 4/5/6, Call and Response Songs with 2/3 and Loud/Soft with K/1.
I keep reminding myself, Fundamentals! Don't forget to stick with the Fundamentals!
