2 4 Tuesday Link Sharing
Two resources I've been using lately in my classroom with great success are:
1. The Rhythm Rush Relay Game: Great teambuilding game that the kids get excited about. I get to observe students' abilities to identify rhythms and I get to increase their rhythmic identification fluency, while they have a fun environment for practice.
2. This week I worked to get my emergency substitute binder in place. I always like to have an emergency plan in case something terrible would prevent me from getting into school. The art teacher next door knows where to find this binder of activities. It is set up so a sub can select activities by grade level that they are comfortable with. Some involve more musical knowledge then others, but there are always fool proof lessons for each grade level available. I don't use it if it is a planned absence, but it is nice for the last minute flu or a death in the family. Everything is ready to be pulled out for a sub!
