How are you preparing your music classroom for long term shut down?
I put small stuff away. Covered all shelves, floor drums, Orff instruments with sheets to deter dust accumulation.

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.

Need a way to help with water intake at school? I was skeptical of it at first but finally caved and bought the cirkul bottle it has helped me nearly double my water intake since having it!! It’s small enough to carry around the classroom, tons of different flavors, and the metal bottle keeps the water cold throughout the school day! 😍 let me know if you want to know more about my favorite flavors so far! Also! Having an Amazon echo with reminders scheduled helped remind me to drink up too!

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

He then proceeded to ask me about daycare arrangements and if I can be reliable. Red flag as his demeanor changed and made me feel unworthy.

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 🙃

Any suggestions for reintroducing concepts to the group of students that’ll be joining us f2f for music the first time this school year?

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.

So how are you planing to do mallet work this year with disinfecting in between kids, classes, etc?

If anyone needs awesome, fun music activities, search Vincent Bates on youtube. He's a music education professor and has his music education students play music games so we can learn, too!
