Books and Music

I really love this rotation’s first grade lesson, because I get to teach one of my favorite “surprise” songs (Good Night, Sleep Tight) while reading one of my favorite books, Time for Bed by Mem Fox (illustrated by Jane Dyer).  Always one of the students says, “I *love* that book!”

This was one of my favorite go-to bedtime books for my own children, and I’m sure yours would love it, too.  It’s available at the Cobb County Library, and very reasonably priced on Amazon:

While you read it, let your child teach you the song with its “surprise” at the end.

 

4th & 5th – Come “sample” Chorus next Wednesday…

Our first chorus rehearsal will be after school on the Wednesday AFTER Labor Day.  (I think that’s September 6th.)  All 4th and 5th graders are welcome to stay and see what chorus is all about before deciding if it’s something you really want to commit to.

If you need a permission slip, please let me know!

(Students not going to ASP after rehearsal need to be picked up in the front circle promptly at 3:15!  Students not picked up by 3:20 will be sent to ASP and you will be charged.)
