My choice would have to be “Prince & Knight” by Daniel Haack.
For those of you who are early risers, what are some of your tricks for getting out of bed early? I hate feeling rushed in the morning because I feel like it transfers over to my classroom.
Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental ￼Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.
I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?

We have classes CA, WI, PA, KS, TX, RI, MI, Canada, New Zealand.

Here’s an infographic with research from classroom coaching over the last 10 years. I hear a lot of “I feel more confident” and “It’s helpful to have a sounding board” What has your experience been?
Always a student. This helps me relate to my own. Mistakes. Confusion. Oopsies like giving the wrong answer when we KNOW it. Learning keeps me off any high horse because sure as the world I’d otherwise get knocked down. We are all students in our classrooms. An indirect bonus is that the connection we make by remembering what it’s like to be a student helps us manage the class better. We relate. We admit. We connect.
How is your district implementing school reentry? How are you setting up your classrooms to meeting social distancing while still allowing for free play?
Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.

Additional Posts in Elementary Music Teachers
Hey! I’m planning to take an Orff Level 1 course this summer. Any tips, tricks, or advice as I prepare? Also, what other trainings would you recommend for elementary general music teachers? Thanks in advance!
What are some VERY SIMPLE yet engaging activities (that don’t involve paper and pencil) that you use on the first days of general music? I teach 4th and 5th grade.
Did anyone else’s back-to-school plan not include music at all? I’ve been told I’m still supposed to teach music this year, but they haven’t announced any plans for it yet. You’d think the classes that contain the most students per day would be a higher concern 🙃

Out of curiosity, how do you all feel about the “haha, recorder is a joke” jab from other teachers? While I enjoy a good laugh, it kind of bothers me coming from non-music teachers.
I have a hand full of k-5 students who have gone the first half of the school year without music because of remote learning. Our district is moving to 100% traditional teaching after the MLK holiday. Any suggestions for reintroducing concepts to the group of students that’ll be joining us f2f for music the first time this school year?

I didn’t really think about it. We were in on Monday and I was either teaching or getting 3-4 page packets of music stuff together for my kids and their parents. End of the day, I packed up my stuff and cleared my desk some. (It’s still a mess, just a smaller one.) And went home. Hopefully we are only gone for 3 weeks, but we will have to wait and see.
