Growth Mindset

This quarter, Grant elementary students are learning how to have a growth mindset at our morning meetings. Each week, we learn a mindset mantra, starting with, "I can't do this... YET!" We have learned that if something is difficult, we shouldn't just give up and say, "I can't do this!" Instead, we should recognize that learning is a process, so we can add "YET" to the end of that sentence, and…

Keeping the beat with instruments and apples

One of the most important foundations of a student’s musicianship is learning to maintain and follow a steady beat.  It is so important for playing and singing together in a group!  In elementary music, especially the primary grades, we practice this A LOT. To keep students engaged and make it fun I use a variety of songs, games, props and instruments.  Here you see first graders playing a favorite…

them. Finally, the class was able to plant seeds and grow their own…
