PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

At my school there's a pretty big focus on literacy, making reading fun, and the importance of books! For years I've hung a "What I'm Reading" poster outside my door. I observed at a school nearby where every teacher had one of these outside their door. It gave them a chance to connect with students and show that they are not only teachers, but readers and learners. I like that this poster can spark conversations with students and get them excited about reading. It's also nice because as a teacher of 500 it's hard to make those personal connections with kids. This allows them to see me as more than just their music teacher, but a person with an outside life. So often I think that it's hard to make those connections "outside" of the classroom and it's those extra moments that mean so much!

When I was making this revised version of my "I'm reading" poster I wondered if there were a way for me to make a musical connection with kids at the same time. That's when I decided to add an "I'm listening" poster as well. This gives me a chance to write down a little information about music that excites me or something that I think is worth listening to.

I laminated the sheet so that I can use a wet or dry erase marker on the surface of the poster and use it over and over again. Usually I talk about a novel that I'm in the middle of or something that's on my bookshelf.
