5th grade students have been writing Haiku poems about something they like, love or are passionate about. I have really enjoyed reading them and listening to why they're writing about their subject. This week they will be setting their poem to a tune in the pentatonic scale that they are creating. Will try posting some next week!
This blog has been created so others can follow my adventures of returning to a music classroom! I spent my first year out of college as a Middle School Band Director, then as the Music Associate at my church for five years. During that time I decided to make a change and began pursuing my Master's in Library Science. I spent five years as the Media Specialist at a primary school and deeply desired to return to my true calling. I've been given that chance in two elementary schools and I am really excited!
