This was a fun project I did with my band to fill the few days between the Holiday Concert and the beginning of Christmas vacation. It engaged my students by using the pep band songs they already knew and creating a story line. It engaged the elementary students with the performance of our story. I introduced the narrator and characters in a story which reinforced their learning of English and storytelling.
In a couple of days my students had come up with ideas of how to portray characters that came to search for a holiday spirit. We rehearsed the songs while our characters figured out their own blocking.

By using "coach mode" of Khan Academy, Peter is able to assess his students' learning through a variety of measures. Peter explains how using Khan Academy has increased student engagement and achievement.
