This morning the 8th grade marching rehearsal at Salina Central was cancelled due to rain. Because of the bad weather, the 8th graders had an opportunity to discuss coordinate systems from everyday life and create a coordinate system for the football field. Using a coordinate system on the football field is an efficient way to teach bands formations in marching band.
The 6th and 7th grade bands looked through their portfolios and added papers to them from the first quarter. The 7th graders also complete a goal-setting sheet while looking through their papers to identify areas where they want to get better next quarter.
