2020 Musical Spring Shows
Only Hamilton ISD, Ann Whitney Elementary Students have access to this page when logged in under their student account. This is a great way to see the instructional videos and facts that I prepared for us to learn the background information for our play. Suggested choreography is on each slide. The students usually make up our own choreography, but these are suggestions created by the author John Jacobson and acted out by another music teacher.
5th grade class can use this slideshow to prepare. This site is only accessible to 5th grade students.
