We went Bb to Eb early last year (before D-C) to accommodate our two note first performance song - seemed to help flutes get fast fingers

Yes - I love gameplan but the "theme" based structure isn't my favorite so I don't use it as is

That sounds like a great plan! Are you using a curriculum for your older students?

That's quite a task! We still need to write grades 2-5 as a team but we have a scope and sequence

We use parts of it with kinder and I use a few songs and concepts with first grade - we have a district curriculum
