Today was another great day at school. Again, I had terrific classes that needed little correction, as a whole (there are always one or two in each class that need stronger discipline). Here is a picture of me telling stories to kindergarten-aged students. We had so much fun!

This is a picture of us “blowing trumpets” as we explored Dixieland Jazz music with scarves.

The highlight of my day was a fifth grade class who performed so well and created such a masterpiece that I would consider using their adaptation as a performance piece. That was how good it was! The boys and girls in the chorus didn’t want to sing and rap the chorus’ line together so they broke into separate groups and made their lines work with BOTH singing and rap! Amazing collaborative effort!

I won’t be at the school next week (they have the Louisiana State Department of Education visiting the school next week for an evaluation). So it will be a week before I can see the students again. 🙁 I look forward to going back to the following week and seeing my students again.

TGIF!!! Have a great weekend!

Warmly, Dianne
