We are back and ready to Sing!. This young lady welcomes students into the music room each day and encourages students to put their hearts into the music we are making.
I have placed these small magnetic white boards on my front board. My goal is to keep them updated each week so that they reflect what is actually going on in music that week. (I think I can.... I think I can..... !)
More friendly tips for students about singing... "Open wide, there's music inside!"
Thanks to Pinterest I have this clever set of rules. I redesigned the cards to match the theme in my room but the wording is all the same. You can find the files for these rules at http://rhythmandglues.wordpress.com/ This gal teaches art AND music! I don't know how she keeps her sanity!?!
Student computers and a new bulletin I'm all jazzed about. If you haven't noticed, my room is entirely cinder block. (Bane of my existence!) If it weren't for sticky tac, I'm convinced my room would have fallen into rubble long ago. I read the package and it doesn't list the ingredients contained in sticky tac - I don't know if that is good or bad but I guess it has held my world together well enough that if it is harming the environment I choose to look the other way!
I had a bit of space on my back wall - so I put up a note value table to help students remember names, counts and what notes and rests are related. Above you can see the clock and our block schedule posted. Helps me keep up with when to start wrapping things up in the lesson.
This little area above my white board is a work in progress. Not sure where I'm going with it but I'll let ya know when I get there! By the way, that flowery line at the top of my white board is the ugly cork tack thing that came with the board. I decided to cover it and behold what one bolt of 1 1/2" gros grain ribbon can accomplish!
