Alzheimer's assignment

 The request: invitations painted by the residents, for an upcoming concert.  The artists: low-to-mid-functioning Alzheimer's patients.  Materials: watercolor concentrates, liquid tempra, glue. Plus one hour.

Song + summer led to sheet music and birds. So I've been experimenting this morning, looking for the best order of steps, asking myself how to stream-line instruction, and trying to anticipate where different residents will need help.

 I think I'll go with more than one solution in my pocket. Teaching is so like theater. You never quite know how the audience will react, but you commit to bringing the solution home.

 I like Music As Wings idea best.

Maybe I can figure a way to have that text to add, too.
