This is my mantra. Colleagues have told me to have fun along this journey. Planning is fun to me. The past couple of days, I have been creating sightreading plans for all of the choirs.
For 6th Grade Girls Choir (GC) & Intermediate Treble (IT), everything is complete for the first semester. The sightreading is simple yet thorough with 2-3 assessments per grading period.
For the boys (MC), I will take things at the same pace but supplement with other resources. Some of which are at school, so I don't what to supplement yet. I'll finish them tomorrow.
For Advanced Treble (AT), the plan used for GC & IT will be accelerated & complete by mid-October. The remainder of sightreading for the semester will be supplemented from other resources that I have at school. Again, I will work on this tomorrow.
In mid-January, all choirs except for GC, will transfer to UIL sightreading practice pieces. I have a document that details the sightreading titles on file - by key, meter, & difficulty.
I will create a different plan for Girls Choir.
All in all, the sightreading plan is different for this year & I'm excited about it. That means I'm having fun!
