Opening movement from Sara Neddo

Little Sally Walker

Encourage them to create their own: (improv)

Children's Concert Share/Debrief 

Lauren is collecting thank you notes. Send to Sara and then she'll forward on.  

Great music selection. Maybe less talking and more questions/answers between director and audience.  Consistent PPTs (first had lots of great information, and later ones seemed to have fewer pictures and information).  Great theme!

Suggestion: could the kids submit their own suggestions. 

Maybe even the music teachers could make suggestions.

Numbers on the floor really helped keep us organized on the way in.  It was greatly appreciated.  

Somewhat lacking in teacher support.  

Wheelchair bound student put far away from her class. Luckily grandma was able to sit next to her, but didn't move class next to her.  May have been because of the bus not being able to drop off where they were supposed to.  Parking lot seemed a little disorganized (morning show).

Thanks to Brown Bus for making it work for Willow Creek! 

Recorder Rubrics


Adriana shared her rubric.

Sheridan shared her rubrics and self-assessment.    (will send to us)

Sara could get a break out session for success criteria in August.

Kindergarten Graduation Songs 

Sara will email hers later: New York, New York.



I'm Growing up

Diane shared: Every Thing Grows is great show stopper

Bill shared: Spend Some Time With Your Child Every Day

School Song is appropriate

Sheridan: Skip To My Lou  (dance and change partners)

4th graders performing square dances at Owyhee 6pm tomorrow.
