Want to get your kids singing from the first day of music while reinforcing classroom rules? This set contains 5 different versions of my music classroom rules (each has slight variations in fonts or amount of ink needed) as well as slides of five original songs (one for each rule) set to a folk tune.

The rules spell out MUSIC!

M- Make good choices
U- Use kind words
S- Show respect (I talk about how this includes to classmates, teacher, and the music that we perform)
I- Involve yourself
C- Care for room and instruments

Rules posters are available with five different background options. Just print the ones you like best!

Each rule poster has a slide to go with it with a song set to a folk tune. Folk tunes include "A Sailor Went to Sea", "Are You Sleeping/ Bother John", "Hot Cross Buns", "If You're Happy and You Know It", and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."

* Please note the PDF of songs does NOT contain sheet music, just the lyrics. I will be getting a lot of new kids at my school this year, but I want to get them singing right away. I will be teaching these by rote. I have chosen these familiar melodies so that they can be accessible to all grades, yet you can still challenge the older kids by having them sing in canon on "Are You Sleeping" or sing on solfa with hand signs.
