Bulletin Board Idea! I am lucky enough to have a bulletin board right out side of my classroom, that I get to decorate. So, in order to make a big deal of Music in Our Schools Month, I am going to adorn it with students playing music 😀
For this up coming month, I am making a bulletin board with picture of my students doing musical things. It took a week of me taking pictures during my lessons of students singing, playing hand drums, dancing, etc… in order to have enough pictures for a bulletin board. I am also using pictures from previous performances and all-county chorus. Along with the pictures, I am also putting some of my favorite ‘musical’ quotes. I am really excited to see what the students and other teachers think of it. (It is a way to showcase what we do!)
During student teaching, my cooperating teacher had students play and sing during lunch time. I am trying to get this approved at my school (fingers crossed). The students loved it during student teaching, and it gave me a chance to know which students were doing extra activities involving music. Thus, getting to know your students a little more. We all know the way to reach students is showing some sort of interest in the things they do.
If you have any ideas please post them! Have a great week 😀
