Sousa's Composer of the Month Kit includes the bulletin board pieces pictured above: composer picture and full name, birth and death date, 6 facts about the composer, a quote by the composer, a short list of popular songs students may know and 2 title sheets. A plain title sheet is included if you choose to display this board at some other time or do not what to stick with the owl theme.
In addition to the display, this kit features 2 worksheets. One worksheet asks students to place the names of states and a few words related to Sousa into two groups based on the number of syllables/rhythm of the word. The other worksheet contains a brief writing prompt and then leaves space for students to design a CD cover of their favorite patriotic song. Worksheets have been designed for 1st-6th graders. Some could be extended into Junior High. The bulletin board display is appropriate Junior High and High School as well as elementary classes.
A list of additional resources for your composer unit are also included.
