Happy New Year... I am close to personal overload, but the first week back has gone well. I think I will be able to bring MUSIC into my next class project culminating in February with the 5th grade Grandparent Tea. Students have interviewed a grandparent over the holidays and now will write their biography to present at the Tea when they introduce their Grandparent to the class and serve everyone tea and cookies. I will ask students to find out a favorite songs from their teens years and play a compilation of them at the event. Music is a great way to learn about history and other people lives.
