Were you able to add the listening map and comparing slide to your Powerpoint. I bought this last week and I'm getting ready to start the lesson tomorrow. I think someone else mentioned in the reviews that the powerpoint did not have the listening slides....

The PowerPoint does have the listening slides. The person who asked the question about it did know know how to use the map. Each slide of the listening portion of the PowerPoint correlates to one section of the piece of music, showing the instrumentation and the form (A section, B section, interlude, etc)
If you bought it the PowerPoint should include those slides. I was no aware that it did not include those slides.

Hi Claire,

Please consider joining the first ever music teacher facebook frenzy:

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=29363

The dates will be close to Dec. 6-9. You would need to have a a business page on facebook for your TPT store and have a freebie ready to go. More directions to come soon, but follow the link above for a preliminary sign up. We have to have at least 20 music teachers interested before it's a go. :)

I am using your Recorder's Rock this year with my 4th graders and I am loving it. My students are progressing so quickly and are really enjoying it. I created a color bead chart that I can mark for each student as they earn them, that follows your book. I was hoping to share it so others can use it to. How can I make it accessible to everyone?

There should not be a password associated with it. That has to do with your computer. Try deleting the file completely off your computer and downloading again.

If that still does not work then please email me at learnmemusic@gmail.com and I can email you files separately. Thanks!

Buyer re: Music Bulletin Boards - Composer and Musician Birthdays
Hi Claire! This is perfect for the idea I had for this year. My question is where do you find the blank calendars for 2013? You mention K-8 magazine (which I subscribe to), but when I e-mailed them about blank calendars, they told me they don't have any thing like that. I DO know that they always post monthly birthdays at the back of their magazine, and so I thought I could type the information from old magazines. The problem is....where do I find blank calendar sheets for this year? Then do I just hand print the information on each day of the month??

I do have the composer pictures (both classical and modern) to use with this idea, just need direction on the easiest way to proceed.

thanks for the great idea of having the kids find their birthday and matching it with composers/musicians. Since I only see each class twice a week and my bulletin board is out in the hall, this will give them a perfect opportunity to check the calendars.

Hoping to hear from you, and I wish you continued success!

Hi! Thanks for your purchase and thanks for contacting me. I am not sure why the MusicK8 folks didn't respond appropriately, but on their website, www.musick8.com they have the calendar every year in PDF. You go to the "Resources" at the top of the site then select "Downloads". Under downloads you will see Composer Birthdays. That page will take you to a download PDF of the calendar with all months. Below is a direct link to the download page:

Hi Claire. Just interested to know how you organize your lessons. Do you have a focus eg beat/rhythm etc for a number of weeks or do you do a bit of everything in each lesson? Also do you just do a little bit of recorder each week or have a specific unit for recorder?
November 15, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Claire Burns
Claire Burns   (TpT Seller)
I have taught both ways. But after teaching both ways, I prefer more of self-contained units over the little bit of everything in every lesson. For instance this school year, we started by focusing on pitch and I made sure the students truly understood pitch through a variety of activities - listening, writing, moving, playing, and singing. Then I moved on to rhythm. Then I eventually plan on combining the two so we can read musical notation, across all grade levels K-5. As far as recorder goes, I do a specific unit for 2-3 months in the late winter/spring as a culmination of everything we learned through the year. Of course I am always incorporating music history, listening, style, and expressive qualities into our lessons, but conceptually we do focus for a while before moving on. Great questions and thank you for asking. Hope this helped.

In the powerpoint, I really like the color-coded pumpkins, but was wondering how the kids should play the boomwhackers. Are they just playing them to the rhythm of the song, or play them just once when their color comes up? What's the best way this has worked for you? Thanks so much - love this song - my kiddos will be so excited.

Claire Burns
Claire Burns   (TpT Seller)
Great question. I have done it both ways - whatever works best for you. And whatever works best for the age group you have. The little ones would do best with just one time per color but then maybe repeat it and go for the rhythm of the words. You could even extend into the upper grades have small groups work together to play the piece - either 1 kid per boomwhacker or for smaller groups, 2 boomwhackers per kid. That will make it super challenging!

Claire Burns
Claire Burns   (TpT Seller)
I made these slides originally about 4 years ago. So my method now seems archaic. But what I did was create rhythms in Finale on a basic percussion notation for the rhythm and voice for the mi-re-do. Then saved it as a PDF - then made selections from the PDF of each individual measure and saved each selection as a JPEG. Then pasted each JPEG image onto a slide in the PowerPoint. That's why the resolution isn't great. If I were to create it today, I would make some kind of template with a staff/line in PowerPoint and then use a music notation font (I like Simple Music I think it's called) and simply type the rhythms/pitches in a text box and move them to where I want them on each slide. Hope this helps! Good luck and thanks for your purchase. If you email me what you want, I could make a custom PowerPoint with other patterns if you wish!

I do not know as I do not own GamePlan. I did an activity like this years ago at a workshop but this is my own version of it. So I would guess it would not be the same - although if the activity I did at the workshop was based on the GamePlan version (I did not have any paperwork from that workshop - just remembered from my head) I guess there are things that could be similar.

Not in its current state. But from what I understand, you can import Flipcharts into Smartboard notebooks. I have never worked with Smart products so I do not have experience with this myself, but I have read that you can using the Import function in Smart. Here are the steps I found:

Open the Notebook software
Click on "File" on the top left corner.
Then click "Import" and select the .flp file you want.
(Make sure the drop down box shows "Promethean files - .flp", otherwise you won't see the flipcharts in your list of possible files to import. My computer lists powerpoint by default, so I have to manually change it to select .flp files w/ that drop down arrow.)
Click "open" & then give it some time to import.

I would try this with a free Flipchart first before you purchase and download.

Also, I am planning on making a PowerPoint version of the game so you are welcome to wait for that to purchase. I can contact you when I have posted that product.
Thanks for your inquiry!

I do have a SMARTboard in my classroom, so should you ever create something like this in power point or SMART compatible file, please let me know! I like integrating music in my classroom and I'm intrigued by boomwhackers. Thanks. Chris @ cryazzienj@yahoo.com

I would be happy to create this in a PowerPoint format. I will convert it, upload it, and contact you when I have done so. Thanks for the suggestion!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught General Music to Kindergarten through Fifth Graders for the past 10 years. I have had a passion for both music and technology from a very young age...in my classroom I combine the two to create exciting, interactive, and meaningful music lessons. I am a certified Teach21 teacher, which is a two-year educational technology endorsement for my school district. I teach at a STEM Academy where we integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into all aspects of our curriculum. We are pushing the envelope of STEM education in public schooling and I love it!!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a lot of technology in my classroom. Almost every lesson utilizes my interactive whiteboard. As far as music instruction goes, my classroom is full of movement, playing instruments, practicing skills, and hand-on work. I cover music history, related subjects, and reinforce math within my music lessons as well.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I serve on various Ad Hoc Committees within my school district for both Fine Arts and Student Performance/Standards. I contributed to the development of the State of Georgia Fine Arts Performance Standards for General Music.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended the University of Georgia, receiving a B.Mus in Music Education in 2004. I taught for 2 years then, while still teaching, I earned M.Mus in Music Education from Auburn University. My Master's program was technology rich, as I attended class via "distance learning," which only worked to fuel my love of technology.
