Today I'm linking up with Mrs. Miracle's Music Room to talk about a few items from my shop that I think will help you prepare for the upcoming school year, as well as, some items I'm excited to purchase and/or use in my classroom this coming school year.
The first item I would recommend for starting out your school year is my Music Street file. This file not only includes the items necessary for a Music Street bulletin board, but it also comes with student manipulatives and the story I use for introducing these houses. I have heard many great comments from teachers that have already purchased this file, saying that it has inspired them to use kodaly in their classroom.

Here is a look inside the product:
These are the manipulatives that can be used on the staff paper I added in the file. Each student can have their own staff to place the notes where they belong.
This is a black and white version of the large house cut-outs that come with the file.
Another item I would recommend for the beginning of the school year is a new file I just added! My Rhythmic Detective game is a great game for all ages and will definitely help when reviewing rhythms at the beginning of the school year! Even though the original game only uses ta & ti-ti the games I have included will be sure to please any elementary grade level. These cards come with standard and stick notation and color or black/white versions.
Finally, I would recommend my newest posters that I've been adding to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. These are a great alternative to a word wall or another addition. They are posters that have music vocabulary words sorted by groupings. Here are the four I have in my shop so far:

As well as items from my own store, I am very excited about the following items in other teachers' shops.
1) I would love to grab some of Amy Abbott's music inspired games. I think these would be great for use with a substitute. I especially have my eyes on the following:

- Music - An UNO-Inspired Treble Clef Game
- Old Maid - A Music Version of the Classic Game
- Go Fish! A traditional card game with General Music Classroom Instruments
2) I have my eyes on the Music Center Sets from Aileen Miracle:
- Music Centers Set (3rd Grade)
