# TALENT SHOW NOTE FROM MRS. FULLER

Dear Parents/Guardians, It’s time for another in- class talent show! Next week, (Jan 31-Feb 4th) all 2nd-5th graders will have an in-class talent show DURING their music period. We have been talking about this in class, but I wanted to let you know the details as well. I want to encourage every child to participate. It would be great if they sang or played an instrument, but not every child is comfortable performing like that. Other options are researching a composer and telling 3-5 facts about that composer. They could do the same with a particular instrument. A student could also choose a modern group to research or a musical. The student can just write the facts down and read them or they may make a poster or print a picture to go with their facts. If they choose to sing or dance, please make sure the song is appropriate. It needs to be something they prepared. They are more than welcome to perform with a friend or practice a routine with a group (from their class) if they would rather do that! They are welcome to bring a CD or you can email the link to their song the day before class. I will have Youtube available as well, but would prefer the link to be sent in prior to the day your child has music. I would rather not take song requests that day. Please make sure the song is appropriate and no one would be offended by the lyrics. I will try to listen to the song before class but my time is limited so I am asking for your help with this. Everytime they get in front of the class, it will get a little easier. So many skills are being developed during this fun time and they don’t even know it! Thank you again for the privilege of teaching your child and for your help and support with activity! Brittany Fuller [email protected]
