4 Ways to Celebrate Music in the Classroom
March is a great time to celebrate all things Music in our classrooms. Many music educators across America will celebrate music education at their schools this month. We all know that music for our students has the power to change them for the better, music is a very powerful positive experience for all.
To celebrate Music in your classroom doesn’t have to be stressful! A simple display where each child has contributed is a great way to show how much music means to them. Below are links to 6 resources that are easy to use and will help your music classes enjoy Music In Our Schools Month.
One of the easiest ways to celebrate is with a colorful exhibit. If you want to make it easy on yourself, print each part onto colored paper. This way, when you hang it for display it will attract attention without too much effort!
This FREE activity is great to use for your display. Print each part of the jigsaw puzzle onto colored paper. Each part of the jigsaw has a different music writing prompt on it for your students to complete. Then your students cut out each part and join together for an instant bulletin board display. Each part of the puzzle fits with the others and you can make it as big or as little as you like!
This collection of resources lets you personalize your music education showcase. There are two background paper options for you to use – dotty or chevron. Print out the music inspiration quotes onto colored paper and hang as part of the display. Add a banner with the alphabet bunting. Included is the whole alphabet, it makes it perfect to make the display heading suitable to your kids and your school. There are also borders in the kit, they will help to frame your display and make it look even better!
Music Coloring Activities
If you want a fun and relaxing way to celebrate music in the classroom, then try using these coloring pages. Again, these will look great on your classroom walls or even in the hallways once your students have colored them in. Your kids will also love being a part of the celebration, proudly showing off their contribution to the colorful display. There are two different music coloring products in my store, and they won’t break the bank either! Click each link below to check them out.
No celebration of music can be complete without some music appreciation. In the Music Listening Worksheets, there are 20 different listening activities pages for you to choose from and use with your classes. Each page can be used with any piece of music you want to study in class. Or, if you are not sure what to choose, there are YouTube links included to 30 different songs that are all about music! That’s enough songs to use a different one, with a different piece of music for every school day in the month of March!
