Everybody Has a Name
It is a new school year and as music teachers we know the great task of learning and remembering names for many, many classes sometimes in multiple schools. Many children do not feel comfortable correcting an adult when we mispronounce their names. Each child’s name, either given or chosen is a gift and a core part of their identity. In this lesson, Charissa [kuh-rih-suh] combines a chant attributed to Avon Gillespie and a variety of children’s books that focus on the importance of our names.
