Attention 5th Grade Band Students: There will be no school beginning Monday, March 16th. You are fortunate in that you have your instruments at home and can get them out and practice while away from school! We suggest setting aside 20 minutes each day to focus on practicing your instrument. We have designed several activities via Flipgrid to help facilitate this practice:
You may be wondering: "What should a typical practice session look like?" We encourage you to look in the box below this announcement for a step-by-step guide to help you structure your practice time at home.
We fully understand that you may be stuck at home without a lot to do or places to go at this time... in addition to the Flipgrid activities listed above, we have designed a series of online activities for students to learn musical skills that will help them when playing their instruments. Please visit the 5th Grade Online Challenge page to learn about these online activities.
In addition to the Flipgrid and Online Challenges described above, Mr. Cosby will be available each day between the hours of 8:00 am and noon to answer any questions you may have about these activities or any other aspect of practicing your instrument at home. A short 10-minute Facetime or TEAMS session can be arranged to help clarify any issues you may be having, whether they be technical computer issues or issues with playing your instrument. Please email Mr. Cosby at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time for a Facetime or TEAMS session and he will communicate directly with you to arrange this.
