Do you want to decorate your music classroom with a forest or woodland theme? This fun, colorful set has everything you need to decorate your music room with a forest theme!
This set includes:
*MUSIC forest-themed rules: Includes a PDF as well as an editable PowerPoint that you can add your own rules to (spelling the word "MUSIC.") The ones included are:
--M: Make good choices
--U: Use good manners
--S: Speak when appropriate
--I: Involve yourself
--C: Care for equipment
*Forest-themed behavior slips ("Top of the Tree," "Fantastic like a Fox," "Star Squirrel" and "Sit by a friend")
*Musical symbol forest-themed set: Print these out and hang in your room, so you can refer to musical symbols as they happen during class/ during listening lessons! I have found having these visuals really helpful in my classroom, because students often refer to them without my prompting! The signs include the following terms:
6/8 (with two different definitions given)
eighth/ quarter/ eighth
eighth/ two sixteenths
two sixteenths/ eighth
dynamics: p, mp, mf, f, ff, pp
*Forest-themed handsign set: includes do-do' with three different designs
*Forest-themed music word wall: includes almost 100 musical terms to hang in your room, as well as letters to alphabetize the terms. I've included signs for letters A-Z, as well as A-L and M-Z, and A-G, H-M, N-S, T-Z, so that you don't have to post words for every letter and can post the words you use most often.
*Forest-themed editable word wall: This allows you to add your own musical terms to the word wall! Simply insert a text box, type the word, and print!
*Forest-themed team signs: These can be used when splitting your students into groups and/or handing out manipulatives. Post the signs so students know where to go!
*Teacher planner divider pages: These can be printed to put into your teacher planner. Divider pages include: Planner, Substitute info, Lesson plans, Class lists, Schedule, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade, Band, Choir, Orchestra, Recorders, Assessments, Grade Book, Rubrics, Concept Plans, PPP's, Monthly Plans, Song Lists, Folk Songs, and Program Music. I've also added an editable version.
