In light of current events and recognizing this has little to do with quarter notes and half notes, these resources may be helpful to you, personally or collectively.
How about some lighter classroom activities!
WHEEL OF NAMES
This is a wonderful group activity. Here's a suggestion about how to present this to your students:
Before Spinning, Ask your Students - What words do you hope you land on?
Spin and Share your Word.
What does your word bring to mind? How does it challenge you? How does it inspire you? What could you do today, this week or in this New Year, that relates to your word? Discuss.
VIRTUAL CHOIR - MAD LIB
Time of Year______________________________
Ask your students to complete the list from 1-15. Then share the Mad-Lib and ask them to read it aloud. Have fun!
