It’s a new school year, so I took some pictures of my music room. I make a point to do that at the beginning of the year because once we start working on music programs, there are piles of costumes, props, and general clutter. I love my room. After being on a cart for over 7 years and traveling to different schools for years before that, it’s wonderful to have one beautiful room in a beautiful school.
This photo plugin crops my photos randomly so if you’re wondering what the photo is, click it and it will take you to my Flickr. I tried to post some details about the photos there. This WordPress plugin is called Alpine PT if anyone is interested.
Here’s looking forward to a great year!
These students did a great job on the “Firework” song. They accompanied the Sixth Grade Choir. I’ll miss them and wish them well at NDJHS!
Hello, NDE Grades 4-6,
I’m sick today, but that doesn’t mean we can’t review the lines and the spaces of the Treble Clef. Please, first go to this link:
REVIEW OF TREBLE CLEF NAMES.
Once you think you know the names of the notes, take the quiz. You must get 90% before you can go on to your teacher-approved website. Please, make sure to SHOW THE SUB your score. If you get less than 90%, you must go back and fix your answers until you get the 90%.
HERE’S THE QUIZ. Simply fill in the blanks, then push the button at the bottom to check your answers. It will tell you your percentage and leave the incorrect answers to fix.
If you were unlucky with your laptop so have none today, then take your paper and write 50 times:
The Treble Clef lines = Every Good Boy Does Fine, and the spaces spell FACE.
Have a great day!
On February 17th, Becky, our secretary at North Daviess was surprised with a birthday party. It would soon be her 50th birthday, so she joined those of us who have entered the exclusive club of a half century of life. The administration and office staff went all out, and the teachers were even treated too as one of Becky’s presents was a mini concert appearance by Bruce Borders, the world-famous Elvis impersonator. Becky loves Elvis music, so it was a great gift. Before the day even began, there was a gag gift–a deputy stopped Becky right in front of the school and gave her a “ticket.” She was escorted into the building in a wheelchair, and the fun festivities began. The students serenaded Becky and gave her lots of cards and gifts. What a great day!
