I love the heart behind what David is doing. From his “About Me” page he shares why his website is named Make Moments Matter:
” Why Make Moments Matter?
Why is this website called ‘Make Moments Matter’? Isn’t it supposed to be about music? “Make Moments Matter” is one of my three main classroom rules (read about them here) and a phrase that helps to guide my life. As teachers we constantly shape the lives of the students we teach through what we share with students and how we react to them. Here is what I tell my students and what I would share with all of you:
“Don’t waste an opportunity. Sometimes you only get one chance to do something. When you get your chance, don’t be scared. Don’t be overwhelmed. Don’t run off crying before you try. You can do it! Take a chance and do your best.”
I LOVE this! I call this being intentional in your relationships. It’s really what life is made for!
Read on to see what you can enter to win!
First I have to share this great video that he shared showcasing scarves, xylophones, and the connect-a-stretchy band using Lynn Kleiner’s “The Waves”.
After reading his “Ultimate Classroom Wishlist” I reached out to David to see if had a stretchy band – and after finding out he didn’t, sent the connect-a-stretchy bands his way! So, I’m going to include some of his suggestions from that list of resources that Bear Paw Creek carries.
