March is my favorite month. I love Irish music and I love celebrating MIOSM March is music month in our schools. Have you met people who don’t care about music education? Maybe your principal doesn’t even “get it”? It’s pretty subjective- but since we’re all music educators, then we know how important music education is for each and every child. That’s why I’m sharing these MIOSM March is music month in our schools Music class activity ideas and A LOT OF FREEBIES!
I’ve noticed a lot of kids like to color. So, I made up a product that gives my “artistic” students an opportunity to shine in music class. Here’s 3 ways this FREE RESOURCE can be used during your MIOSM celebrations.
There are tons of designs you can make using “MUSIC IS COOL” FREE RESOURCE. Here are some examples:
#2 MIOSM WRITING ACTIVITY
You may choose to have your students celebrate MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH by sharing their feeling through a writing activity. Use the full page sheet as a classroom activity. Have students share their feelings with a buddy.
#3 MIOSM WALL QUILT
I made the Card size sheets for each student in the whole school. The Strings and Band teaches will have their students fill out the ca
rds. Then we are going to make a big quilt up in the front foyer.
I will use the lettering at the top of the “quilt”. Then I’ll use some yard to divide the paper into 600 squares. Then my 4th graders are going to be the ones to fill in the quilt with our Cool Music comments. I will use Green paper as the background. We’ll also use the music symbols to create a border around the outside of the quilt.
Letters and words you can print or print and trace—
It will look something like this:
Whatever you do-celebrating MIOSM, March is music in our schools month, can be a fun experience for the whole school and great reminder to some of the ways MUSIC reaches all students.
