This month in music class, we will be going over how to practice our recorders and getting practice journals as homework. Students will be receiving a grade for turning in their practice journals each week with a parent signature. Students will STILL receive credit for their practice record if they have a parent signature even if they do not have any minutes. Late work will be accepted with one grade deduction per day late (up to three days late).
We will have a competition between the classes to see which class can earn the most hours of practice time. Students should write down (in minutes) the amount of time each night they practiced their recorder. The adult who signs their practice record should have heard them play and be able to vouch that the time recorded is accurate. Their minutes will not count towards the class total unless they have a parent or guardian signature.
The class with the most amount of practice time each week and the highest percentage of practice journals turned in will get to have the GOLDEN RECORDER on display in their classroom! Let the music begin!
