Music Rules: Posters and Songs in a watercolor theme. Want to get your students singing from the first day of music class, even while covering your classroom rules? Everything is more exciting with a song! These five music room rules have a song to go with each to make learning them fun and help them to be more memorable for your students.

This file is also included in the money saving bundle: Watercolor Music Room Decor Bundle

I have included four different sets of the rules, some just have the rule and some have the big letters for the MUSIC acronym.

You could print the corresponding song for each rule or simply project it onto your screen while you are learning it. In my room, I only print the rules, but you could do whatever works best for you!

The rules spell out MUSIC!

M- Make good choices

U- Use kind words

S- Show respect (in smaller letters it says "to classmates, teacher, and music" - I added the part about respecting the music this year and I can't wait talk about ways we respect the music with my kids - so important!)

I- Involve yourself

C- Care for room and instruments *

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.
