The Third Grade Program went well!! This is not perfect, but here is a video for your enjoyment. It does calm down after the first 2 songs. We had some trouble with the phone we were using. I will be taking this down in about a week.
For anyone trying to Use the Quaver site on an iPad - It doesn't seem to work on Safari or Chrome because they don't have FlashPlayer. There is a browser called Puffin that has Flashplayer and I got QuaverMusic.com to run on it. Puffin is a free download.
