Books About Music For Kids

great for literacy in the music class- Picture books about music and instruments for kids. I've only read four of them, but it looks like a good list to check out.

Interesting idea: Create your sub plans as a video. Students get instruction directly from you and makes the life of the guest teacher so much easier.

Have all your music students write their names on an eighth note to make a Note Tree. "We're growing together in music!"

This could easily be transformed into a LIM tree! Have all your music students write their names on an eighth note to make a Note Tree.

Reward board music bulletin. Make a pin for each classroom and clip it to their designated grade. On your whiteboard or chalkboard put the word MUSIC ( I use magnets). During the lesson if the class is too talkative, take a letter away. If the class keeps all the letters on the board at the end of lesson, they move two steps on their keyboard. 1-4 letters left is one step. No letters = no steps. When a class reaches the end of their keyboard, they earn a free music class.

Reward board for music class. I wold alter it (for my MANY) groups of each grade levels, & when they reach an OCTAVE, they can "party like a rock star"!

An awesomely fun DIY music game! Could also use questions, directions, etc. instead of rhythms. Definitely could adapt to use song genres, reminiscing, etc.
