How I use these:
While I like to discuss the monthly composer in class, and in fact do a monthly bulletin board for each one, I find that it can be hard for the kids to really connect to someone who lived centuries ago, whose music they do not even hear much, if at all!
So, each month, I have the sheets in a folder below my monthly composer bulletin board, and I invite the kids to grab one and fill it out (all grades, K-12), then I do a random drawing at the end of the month, usually for a something I have leftover in my room, such as music pencils or even Halloween candy! All it takes is some coloring and answer three simple questions - what instrument each composer played, what he might have named his pet (and why!), and what his favorite food might have been.
Composers included are Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Williams, Bach, Tchaikovsky and Wagner.
