Week # 6 (the day the lights went out!)
This week was a little nerve racking because the power went out during the middle of our class. Bryann handled it well, though, bud admitted to her nervousness later.
Also, Bryann was having a busy week already because she was expecting to perform her scene with a friend at USC for her Theatre class. She was just a little nervous in Kindermusik and also, a little nervous about singing the national anthem for the Buddy Walk 2009! (rightfully so!)
Even though she had a lot on her mind this week, she still pushed through with Kindermusik, remained faithful to come to class on time and student teach with me.
Two concerns this week for S. M's:
How to handle the class if the lights go out
How to keep the children from crowding around as we pass out instruments
We went over simple techniques to handle each of these issues. Let's face it, if we aren't exposed to awkward situations, then we aren't as prepared on how to handle the when they arise. So, we remain thankful for the challenges that prepare us for who we need to be now and in the future.
And I'll end with that! More on Bryann's upcoming performance... singing the national anthem!
