In my previous post (Center ideas for MIOSM) I talked about the posters and poems my students were going to be completeing this week. I am here to report, we did it, and with great joy I can proudly say it has become a true statement in the school. Hundreds of poems and posters promoting why music is important to my students. It is a sight for music advocates eyes. I’m very proud of it and the notice it has gotten from other teachers. I plan to keep it up for another 3 weeks until I switch schools one last time for the year. Next week I will be adding the last unexpected part to it, my Kindergartners and 1st graders actually WHINED because they wanted to do this as well so I will be doing a shared writing with each of those classes and adding on!
Instead of just bragging about my wall I decided it would be best to just show you, a picture is worth a thousands words, right?

Have you ever asked why music is important to your students?
