Specials night — music, art, and Spanish. Kavi told me what instrument she was playing there, but I can’t remember now — oops. She did a fine job keeping the beat, though, even though she was feeling sick that day. We’d asked if she wanted to stay home (she’d come home early from school that day), but she was worried that the song wouldn’t sound right without her part. Luckily, she felt okay for the half hour of performance. Hooray for the brevity of third grade shows! And the group’s recorders actually didn’t sound too terrible, perhaps because the teacher cleverly used them as punctuation to a recorded song.
