This summer we all need to get away. Here’s my new challenge. Can’t wait for the students to bring back 5-8 souvenirs so I can give them their rewards at the end of the summer. Yes, I changed my room arrangement a bit. I moved the digital piano to the other wall for my sample class and I think I’ll keep it there for the summer!
Students choose their own activities to complete (or do all of them for a fabulous gift card!). Each of these musical souvenirs are actually a great way to review.
Here are the details. Stop along each street for musical souvenirs. Prizes increase for the number of souvenirs you collect over the summer.
5 musical souvenirs = candy bar -or- sticker pack
6 musical souvenirs = King size candy bar -or- bentcil
7 musical souvenirs = Texas Donut -or- $2 bill
8 musical souvenirs = $5 gift card of your choice!

I realized I never posted the winner of Sweet Keys last year (Summer 2019)! Here is a photo of last year’s summer challenge. Kait was the winner. She got to the end of the keyboard!
