I started September planning to keep up with putting all the resources for Can Do 3 on this site in time for each month as it came. I’m not keeping up with my plans. Life keeps getting in the way!
Maybe that happens to you once in a while in the classroom?
There’s science and math, language arts, assemblies and maybe even a snow day or two. Classroom teachers have huge curriculum expectations to meet as well as personal goals.
Even when you don’t see all the up-to-date resources for Can Do 3 on the site, I’m working at it, just one bit at a time.
Classroom music sometimes needs a “one bit at a time” approach. Just choose one song or one dance or one warm-up … and do that! If there’s music time left, sing through favourite parts of the repertoire, play the instruments in a rollicking cacophony, relax to the strains of quiet instrumental music … all this meets the most important part of including music in ordinary class life…
… so that students will be able to find in music
