Special Areas Rotations
Each day our Cardinals will visit, and engage, with one of our fabulous Special Areas! We lovingly call this rotation MAP for Music, Art, and PE. Each year there is a set rotation and all classes are assigned a rotation (A,B, or C).
For the 2019-2020 School Year, the rotations are as follows; please not that some K-2 classes are split across all days. Please be sure to verify with your teacher the rotation that your child is in, as they will rotate with three other classes.
(Split classes - Lister, Moss, Vieira)
A Day : Arredondo, Burke, Bock, Nguyen, Pandola, Lucidi
B Day : Silva, Ashby, Cole, Crenshaw, Valdes, Conlan, 2-Arredondo, Laird, Lehman, Roth, Rounds, Schwab, Utley, Moir
C Day : VAughan, Fanelli, Joisten, Croteau, Dougherty, Wenske, Brewer, Herrera, Ebert, Franklin, Sheblak, Kruger, Lee, Robillard,
Special Areas Rotation Calendars can be found by clicking on the button (below) that matches your teacher(s) as listed above:
Physical Education (P.E.) is taught on a 3-day rotation with art and music to students in grades K-5. Students will participate in a variety of activities in accordance with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. We look forward to teaching your child an assortment of sports skills along with cooperation and good sportsmanship. Please see this flyer for more information.
Performance Day in Music Class - the students will have a performance day during their regular music time. This will be Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday depending on which day your child attends music.
Ideas for performance day:
Play a song on an instrument they have learned (no making up songs on the spot please). This could include piano, guitar, accordion, recorder, violin, cello, etc. Sing a song they have practiced. Dance to a song that is prepared ahead of time. Show and tell about an instrument they do not play (e.g., grandpa’s old trumpet)
Other ideas might include: Jump rope, Tell jokes, Gymnastics (we will have a mat), Hula hoop, Karate, Perform a short drama (skit), Juggle, etc.
We also ask that the performance be limited to 2 minutes to allow all class members an opportunity to perform. We hope your child will want to participate but it is not required. This will in no way affect your child’s grade. It is just a time to share with the other students in their classroom. (This is not a contest) We also ask that parents do not attend unless they are part of the performance. Questions? Contact: Barry Nunnelee, Clayton Music Teachers.
