Celebrate Caroling! Switchin’ Up that Bulletin Board
It’s a super, super busy time of the year for all of us. Between concerts, all-school sing alongs, grades, assessments, conferences, potlucks, and every other thing that comes along, who’s got time for a bulletin board!?
I’ll admit that I’m a bulletin board person… a bulletin board fanatic maybe? I love adding new color and getting kids excited about something different. I use the Composer of the Month sets by Sara Bibee and change them out every month. I also change out my monthly “Moral Focus” bulletin board which features two new famous musicians every month and talks about how each musician exemplifies the moral value of the month. I love this set because it teaches about composers and their lives at the same time that it tells kids about character traits. And then of course I have to change my monthly calendar set to show off the famous composers, musicians, producers, and musical artists who were born each month. That’s a lot to change every 1st of the month, I know (but the kids get so excited about each one… I can’t stop now!).
