An alternative to a regular practice log. Before each band lesson, students write down what they practiced the previous week. In 5 sentences, tell what you worked on and how it went. Tell if things went well, or if you need help with something. You can even ask specific questions about a fingering or rhythm. They do not need to write how long, when, or where they practiced, but you could add that if you like.There is place for the teacher to respond with either a suggestion or a comment each week. Even a sticker will work. Great way to include writing in band. Journals will be collected and returned during band lessons.
