Reply To: How to grade a bump on a log?
Have you talked to the classroom teacher or the parents? What grade/age is the student? I tend to communicate these kinds of things each quarter with my report card comments, i.e. “So and so does not participate actively in songs and learning activities. It would help so and so if he/she would sing, move, drum with the class to develop music skills. Music class is a doing class, so participation is huge part of how we learn in class.” Something like that so that parents get a small idea of the fact that you do LOTS of different activities, not just sit and sing songs out of a book.
