I love these "chalknotes" from my creative students.  While waiting for their lesson, they draw me notes.

Notes to the Teacher

 As part of our E-FISH-ent Practice Event student were to write a note to me on their assignment sheet to prove that they read the assignment.  Most of them wrote their notes on the assignment sheet; however, three of them thought a special note to me was in order!  I love it!

E-FISH-ent Practice Event Ponds

I wanted to capture the ponds that each student created for this event.  There were two ponds, one in Lakewood and one in Bemus Point (blue tissue paper over poster board).  These are all the ponds in one place.  

Dani, Eliza A, Emma, Gloria, Kenny, Lillian, Sam, and Taj all had three fish in their ponds.  Alex, Eliza D, Jack, and Mallory had one or two fish in their ponds.

How did they get the fish? By accomplishing three practice tasks for three weeks.  Each week if they accomplished the three tasks, they put a fish in their pond.

This week they find out who won the drawings.
Three fish - a live goldfish and tank
Two fish - a large bag of Swedish Fish Candy
One fish - an activity and coloring book of Dori.
Everyone will receive a prize who isn't chosen from the drawings. They will find out what it is at their next lesson.'s fish related.  hee hee

E-FISH-ent Practice Event

We started the piano year with a Practice Event called E-FISH-ent.

 These are the fun decorations that have adorned the Lakewood and Bemus Point Piano studios for the last month.
The blue square is the water waiting for the fish ponds to be added.

  Found these puzzles at the Dollar General.  They were perfect for our event.

A Painting For You Mrs. Robison!

Dani came to her first lesson this Fall with this painting she made for me.  Dani and her friend spent some time painting at her house and keeping Mom busy with the cleanup afterwards.  But what a great time she had and I get the benefits of their fun.  Pretty awesome, Dani!  By the way, she likes purple.

Cindy's Piano Studio Welcomes New Student

Last week Cindy's Piano Studio Lakewood welcomed Ida to piano lessons.  Ida will soon turn six years old and is very excited about learning to play the piano.  "I like the way the piano sounds." was her comment when I asked why she wanted to learn to play piano. Ida has had her first lesson in which she learned how to sit correctly at the piano.  She is practicing her "great pose" here:
Tweety was never concerned that he would fall off of Ida's head as Ida was awesome at performing her great pose.

Ida's books for learning music are the fun Faber My First Piano Adventures.  

Ida likes to dance, play tennis, soccer, and swim.  We are going to have great fun in piano lessons with Ida!
