Here it is... my first linky party on my new blog! This is from Mrs. Miracle's Music Room. Here are my five favorite Pinterest links for October.
1. Rhythm Football - Free Version
I'm not much of a football person, but my students sure are! When I tried this awesome game out with one of my third grade classes, I had to actually tell them to cheer quieter because they were too excited. That's a good problem to have, I suppose...
2. Silly Sentence Boomwhacker Composition
I love the idea of building a sentence and color-coding to match the boomwhackers. What a great opportunity for a literacy tie-in and parts of speech review, especially with grades 2-5. I haven't found a good way to port my boomwhackers around on my cart yet, but when I do, this idea will definitely get good use.
3. 5 Little Pumpkins
I've seen and heard so many different versions of this fingerplay, but the Raffi version referenced in this pin will always be my favorite!
4. Dem Bones Book
I try to use at least one picture book a week with my PreK and Kinder classes. I have a feeling this might make it into the upcoming rotation.
5. Monster Mash Freeze Dance
I already have the generic freebie version of these Freeze Dance cards and my students really get a kick out of having to match the poses on the cards. I can only imagine how much fun they will have with the cute halloween characters. I definitely want to add this to my arsenal of "things to do while the students are hyped up on candy."
Happy Mid-October! Two weeks til Halloween!
