2017 W.O.W. 5th Grade Students of Kristin Lukow

5th grade students are tested over music vocabulary each year. This is one of the ways we review!
We are missing melody and harmony in this movie but I promise they know them!  We take a pre-test and post-test each year and if they raise their class average by 10 points, I have them a whole music class of recess.  Class #1 went from a 69% to a 92% so they are going to play!  The other two classes have yet to take their tests.  We shall see!!

I do believe we have a deficit in our country, a deficit of enthusiasm.  Perhaps not in all things.  Some are enthusiastic about favorite sports teams but in my humble view, we are lacking enthusiasm for the simple pleasures in life, the important things. Friendship.  Family.  Faith. Learning.  We seem to sometimes take an apathetic view of the things that matter most while embracing those things which ultimately make no difference.  Families, I encourage you to love each other well and experience life with joy!  Model enthusiasm and enjoy life together!

I have been so blessed to have a fabulous student teacher this quarter.  She is directing our final MIOSM show this year.  These are 1st & 2nd graders from Adams Central East Elementary School.  We do the same program with our three elementary schools in three different venues.  We love to share the gift of music.  Enjoy!

Wallace 1st & 2nd at The Homestead in 2017

Each year, I take my 1st and 2nd graders into the community to perform for
our senior citizens.  We typically do this in March as we celebrate MIOSM.
Music In Our School's Month. Here is our first performance of 2017.  Just a
couple of new mistakes.  You just never know!
