Loretta Mitchell - Hal Leonard Corporation
A music room with empty bulletin boards can be pretty lifeless and uninspiring, but planning and preparing them takes lots of time. Considering all of the things that compete for a busy music teacher's time, this resource is certain to be a favorite! Developed by Loretta Mitchell, a nationally acclaimed educator, writer and clinician, this book is carefully organized, beautifully illustrated and chock-full of creative ideas. The first section of the book takes you through every month of the year, offering several different bulletin boards per month. Some are tied to seasonal events, but always in a way that teaches a musical concept, and others are tied to specific compositions that are appropriate for that time of year. The second section of the book contains ideas for general use, arranged according to focus areas such as rhythm, melody, music news, etc. The book ends with another time saving feature: reproducible patterns that can be copied, enlarged and adapted. And if you want to keep your book intact, there is a Reproducible Pack available that contains copies of all these pages. This is a valuable resource for any music specialist, one that helps you reinforce the concepts you are teaching while bringing new life to the walls of your classroom!
