You can have fun and be silly and still deliver lessons that build music literacy. But, not all camp songs are silly. Michael Row the Boat Ashore is a beautiful, lyrical spiritual.

Instruments of the Orchestra

This is the season when students begin to register for classes for the upcoming year. For many students, this will be the first time they get to choose a few of the classes they will take. They may have the option of registering for beginning band, orchestra, or choir.

You are the best advocate for these programs! Help your students make informed decisions by teaching them about the instruments and the various programs in your district.

Bonus – Spelling Blocks | For Any Word List

Yup! I know I am a music teacher. But we had a reluctant second grader at our house who needed more ways to practice his spelling. So, I created this drag & drop Spelling activity for use at home. Since then, I have had teachers in other classrooms tell me how much they appreciated using this resource that works for any spelling list. Or, maybe, like our family, you want to USE THIS RESOURCE AT HOME.

A first grade teacher had this to say. . . . . .
“I was searching for a good, feasible, and effective way to build words with my students! This is it! We use this often to practice our spelling words on our Chromebooks in Google Classroom with my 1st graders. They have learned to use it really well and it is fun. I love that I have a record of what they did (unlike when we use whiteboards) so now I know who needs intervention.”

These drag & drop spelling blocks are available as PowerPoint or Google Slides versions. Please share this one with your classroom teachers.
