Friday Favorites

Yay for Friday! The weekend is almost here. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite supplemental books of the week – Bravissimo by Timothy Brown. Particularly Book 2 seems to be catching my late elementary students’ interest perfectly. You know when the title of the piece peaks their interest and then the sound of the piece grabs them? Then it’s almost too good to be true when they can learn it easily  – when the piece seems to fit perfectly under their hand and coincides with concepts you’ve been reinforcing all year? This week, I thought this book was a great resource for all of these reasons and more.

So, what was your favorite resource of the week? We’d love to hear it and hope to keep sharing more with you in quick Friday moments before we all go off to the weekend!
