This year I'm trying something new-travel soap boxes! I picked mine up at Wal-Mart because it seems like I am there all time, but I am sure you can find them in other places too. A box of 24 crayons fits perfectly!

Today I am linking up with David from Make Moments Matter to showcase some of my favorite bulletin boards for back to school time about composers. This year I hope to increase the amount of time that my kiddos spend immersed in the music of the greats. These bulletin boards will help!

So rather than give you a list of the good, the bad and the ugliest classroom set-up ideas, I thought I would walk you through thinking up your own plans. Be warned. All of these questions may have you thinking that you’ve stumbled across the Riddler’s blog!
Will students have open access to instruments? How will you store and label instruments so this process goes quickly? Some instruments may need to be hidden. How will you do that?
Stupid pencils. Every year I try something a little different and every year I am convinced that nothing works! Lol. I keep a pencil can because students never remember to bring a pencil each time. This works well when getting supplies. The problem? Disappearing pencils. I go through hundreds of pencils a year! How will you handle the pencil problem?
|When I taught computers I added a label with masking tape to remind students to leave the pencil they borrowed from me in the lab.|
Where will students be for most of the learning? Floor, carpet, carpet squares, chairs, risers? How will you optimize this space to keep students on task? Will you use a seating chart?
Space for You
The Rest Area
Some boards I like to leave up all year:
Musicians are Writers
|One way I organize papers for the week is with days of the week folders,|
Whew! What a list! Hopefully you have a great plan to create a beautiful and functional space for your teaching adventures this year. I look forward to seeing your photos!
