Yesterday reminded me that I need to read every word of a memo.
One of the schools I work for sends us information via email a couple of days before we report to work. I got it, read it, and thought I knew what is going on. I did not take anything with me because I thought my grade was one of the grades to celebrate Israel’s birthday. Well, it wasn’t, until next week. So, I had to think fast about what to do with the students. We had a Shacharit service. We didn’t only practice the prayers taught this year, but we also discussed and learned more about the prayers. Before class, I grabbed Hebrew flashcards that pertained to prayer. I am so impressed with what kids learned and retained this year! Things happen for a reason and I am glad I didn’t “get the memo!”
Tomorrow at the Chabad school I teach music for will have their first experience with reading music. Of course one of them is the Adon Olam I wrote. We will probably sing it as well! I can’t wait!
I bought a great music book of Beatle’s Music. Lyrics and chords of everything they did. I will definitely have fun with it over the summer. I may even use some of it at the camp I will be teaching music at.
If it keeps raining, we may all “Live In A Yellow Submarine!”
