Welcome to the Music Room! Let's take a look around!
Here's a view from the door. The chairs are set up for students in the older grades that will focus on activities on the SmartBoard the first class period.
Books in the music room? You bet! There are so many musical stories, poems and more that I can't wait to share with students.
Partial storage of classroom instruments. The big tubs on top of the cabinet are the most AWESOME bass drums ever! They are on sale at Wal-Mart right now so if you have room the next time you are there pick up a few for the music department!
This picture shows the Music Burger which helps us write creative paragraphs about the music we listen to. Behind the piano is a bulletin board about careers in music. There are so many great careers to choose from in the music industry and it is never to early to think about your future!
This is a view from the back of the room. Below the boards you can see our musical word wall. The words are grouped by categories like "rhythm", "tempo", "expression", etc...
This station contains some of the items we'l l use in class every day like Hungry Harry, Mimi the Muncher and lots of pointers for lyrics and music reading.
Speaking of props, there are lots of times that we'll use fun things like baskets, rubber chickens, tennis balls and cups to learn musical concepts. Fun!
This station holds commonly used manipulatives like bingo chips for listening charts, clothes pins for Rocketship Rhythms, Aloha Melodies, Pin up the music, etc... There are also caps for the bottlecap staves and dry erase markers to use with lap packs. Lap packs contain several different kinds of graphic organizers, music staves and drawing space for expressing our ideas and composing.
The Get it and Go station contains packs of crayons, markers, pencils and other supplies and will house student folders throughout the year by class. The cool sundae in the background displays the national standards in music.
