Last week we are started a 100 Days Practice Challenge at the Naperville Suzuki School!
Our main goal is to see how much we learn in 100 days of consecutive practice, and a nice benefit is that we establish the habit of DAILY practice. We will be acknowledging participants via a bulletin board at the school (in suite 104) as well as in-class announcements at the two Pre-Twinkle Classes. We'll also have a 100 Days Practice Challenge party on June 1, from 5:00-6:00PM in the group class room (no group classes that week), with pizza and a viewing of Fantasia!
This optional challenge is not limited to our pre-twinkle class, and is open to anyone attending our school who would like to participate.
100 Days Practice Challenge Guidelines:
Students must practice 100 consecutive days. If you miss a day, you can't "practice extra" to make up the missed days, and the count is restarted. Don't worry if you have to do this a few times at the beginning--the pizza party is more than 100 days away!
On vacation or sick days, listening to your recording counts as practice.
How much time, and what material constitutes practice should be a discussion between you and your private teacher. You may also wish to set a goal with your teacher for the 100 days.
Parents will keep a tally of consecutive days of practice, and email Maeve O'Hara at firstname.lastname@example.org during certain increments throughout the challenge (see below), so we can post stars with the student's name and numbers of days practiced on the bulletin board.
Stars will be updated at the following increments: 7, 14, 21, 28 days, then 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 days.
Parents will allow 2-4 days for the stars to be posted.
