We've had a really good week with band so far. Most of the kiddos remembered their instruments which is hard after a break. If your child is having a hard time remembering on their day, try having them set a reminder on their device (if they have one), or on your phone.
Next week I will be bringing some small prizes to in school practice that they can buy with their band bucks. I will also auction off a few bigger prizes at after school band next week. I will do this several times this year, so if they don't have enough yet, they can just keep saving.
When they practice at home, have them write their practice minutes down on the chart in their book; this will earn them 5 bucks for every 15 minutes. I tried to pass out note flash cards to all first years this week. Doing flash cards can count as practice minutes too.
I'm really enjoying working with these students this year. Please keep encouraging them to practice and to bring their instruments on the correct day.
Have a great weekend!
