The third graders have been learning how to use the recorder. It has been fun hearing the girls play their instruments together. Jolene has loved learning the new songs and then performing them around the house and to her teacher. The have been earning colored ribbons like in karate, all the way up to the black belt which she and only a handful of students received before the performance. There was one song she was struggling with so she got on YouTube and learned from the demo. She is so hard on herself if she doesn't get something right away. She works hard to make it perfect before she is satisfied.
