What's Your Name? Beginning of the School Year
Most of us music teacher peeps have between 300 and 1200 students we see in any given week/schedule/rotation. That's a lot of Ashlyn's, Jack's, Shawanda's, Zeke's, and Bailey's to learn! Names are so personal and special; mine for instance, I changed at 16 from "Amy" to "Aimee". It wasn't a big deal, I didn't go for something completely different, but had a grandfather who had taken the French spelling out of my mother's maiden name and so I, in my teenage-driven zeal for righteousness and…

Preschool Story Time - Spoon
Well this was one of those 'what was I thinking?' moments. There are SO many books you can use for the theme of cooking or eating, I thought I would narrow it down. I love ALL of Amy Rosenthal's books, especially Chopsticks, but cuts had to be made. Other books considered were Spork by Kyo MacLear, and Stone Soup in any format. The kids looked puzzled when I introduced this theme, but the moms looked at me as if to say "OK, let me see you pull THIS off." It was just good fun before we got…
