Well friends, it is March and today is the day my brackets for #maniemusicale2018 got printed.
It is not for lack of preparation, however. I’m more excited about this MMM than I have been about any previous, in part because I’m giving my students control over the bracket. Since about October, we’ve listened to a different French song every single Wednesday, and my students voted for their favorites from that list today. I added the top 16 to my bracket for the class.
Today also starts a unit on … MUSIC! I’m so excited to have this pair up with #maniemusicale, so I’m not even mad that my brackets will be ready after the 1st. I have some grandiose ideas about how to get kids talking about music, supporting their opinions, and researching French artists to compare to their favorite American ones.
I hope to post more later, but here’s my updated list for this year!
