What Students Really Need to Hear | affectiveliving

What Students Really Need to Hear | affectiveliving

As long as you are in my life, I am not going to let quitting be easy for you.  I am going to challenge you, confront you, push you, and coach you.  You can whine.  You can throw a tantrum.  You can shout and swear and stomp and cry.  And the next day, guess what?  I will be here waiting — smiling and patient — to give you a fresh start.  Because you are worth it.

Toccata & Fugue in d minor (BACH, J.S.)

My 5th and 6th graders are learning Toccata and Fugue in D Maybe arranged by Paul Jennings which is based on this piece by Bach. I LOVE this piece!  You can get it here: Music K8 - Toccata and Kazoogue in D Maybe

We really like this arrangement on the electric guitar!
