I Was Right

About what I wrote about picture day yesterday, yeah, I was right. I hate picture day.

The day was a waste mostly. Picture day included all the non core class teachers spending most of the day in the gym hoping that the kids wouldn’t hurt themselves as they bounced off the walls while waiting for their group to be called to stand in line for pictures. I did get to play a bit with 7th and 8th grade. In 8th grade, some progress was made. In 7th grade, progress was also made, but mostly in learning what the kids didn’t know. For instance, all the clarinets in the 7th grade who were in a different school last year know zero fingerings above the break or below C below the staff. The flutes are apparently immune to key signatures and the saxes aren’t sure of fingerings such as the very tricky (rolled eyes) Bb. The first order of business tomorrow morning will be to get fingering charts printed for that 7th grade woodwind class. It seems that this is going to be every bit the challenge that I thought it would be.
