In our last Rep Class we talked about our talents on piano and the other things we are good at. I put together a one page journal that my rep class students could use to write about their musical talent.
On one page, they were to write about someone they saw at a recital or event that impressed them and how they wished to be able to play like that someday.
"We have all seen talents in another person, sometimes even wishing we could do what they do as well as they do it. Observation of other’s talents and skills can be very valuable to the pre-teen who is trying to acquire or develop a specific talent."
On the other page, my students wrote about how they also set an important example for the younger, less experienced students who hear them perform. And how it makes them feel to know that someone is looking at them with the same admiration they had for someone else.
I was inspired to do this project by reading about pre-teen journaling-- Click here for the link to the complete article.
