Today I am linking up with Aileen Miracle from Mrs. Miracle's Music Room for my Five Favorite Pins of May! Here they are!!!
Favorite Pin #1:
How fun are these?! I have always wanted to incorporate a behavior clip chart into my classroom; however, with the large number of students and classes, I didn't think it was feasible. With this method, I can easily assign a class to each clothespin. Each class period, the class would either move their clothespin up or down the guitar according to their behavior for the day. When they reach, "We Rock," the students receive a reward!
Favorite Pin #2:
We continuously use our "hand staff" in our music classroom! I love this idea of actually drawing our hand staff and marking the lines, spaces, and note names on the drawing.
Favorite Pin #3:
These wonderful rhythm manipulatives can be found on the Rhythm Band website. These seem extremely durable and large enough to easily handle with the kindergartners. I often use popsicle sticks to notate rhythm concepts. I would love to have a set of these rhythms to quickly grab to demonstrate a rhythm. I also am glad the rhythms are different colors!
Favorite Pin #4:
I am in LOVE with this jellyfish! Simply cut off the bottom of a 2-litter and add eyes and ribbon. This would be an excellent prop for a movement activity. Maybe to "Aquarium" from Carnival of the Animals?! I am adding this to my summer to-do list!
Favorite Pin #5:
With the love of "Let it Go" from Frozen, I just had to repin this pin! It is the boomwhacker version of my students' favorite song, "Let it Go." Enjoy!
Those are my five favorite pins of May! What are yours?! Link up with Mrs. Miracle's Music Room to share!
