What a whirlwind week before the holiday break! A snow day before the holidays is quite a rare thing in our mild state. Last Wednesday is the only time I've ever seen so many students, parents, and teachers hoping that the snow would miss us. Fortunately, we were able to have a couple of hours on Friday to finish up holiday fun, despite the half day and one hour delay.
Many students and parents have asked for a copy of our holiday songbook. Here it is, in PDF format! The book is lyrics only, but chords and even free sheet music can be found for most of these songs with a quick web search.
Forest and Mountain classes learned "Jingle Bells" and "S'vivon" on their recorders this month, and many students are eager to show off their skills at home. If your child missed the handout, here is the sheet music, with bonus song "Silent Night."
As you know, I am always looking for new ways to integrate technology into my music classroom. Here is a novel idea... I imagine this would be an extremely popular Middle School elective! Happy Holidays!
