How do those of you who give letter grades for Elementary music do so? My district has given "S" and "U" until this year. HELP!

I'm not sure why your dist. has gone to letter grades for elementary music, but: Try weighting it toward participation and class preparation. Give lots of points for concerts and daily attendance for example, and less to playing tests as in the beginning years the skills will come at a widely varied pace.

i think you should give grades for what iss expected in class every day (pencil, paper, books,etc.
). Playing tests should start when the students learn to get their instruments under control . i don't know if you have practice cards, but if you do then you should make that sort of like a safety net for if they donnot have materials or don't do well on playing tests.
You should definitely give grades for concert and class attendence.
