12 Days of Music Class
I used the "12 Days of Christmas"
as inspiration for my bulletin board. I titled it, "The 12
Days of Music Class". Kindergarten classes helped make the
"tree" by rolling up green paper, making three cuts down one
end about half way on each roll and pulling it out to "grow"
the tree branch. We then sang, "O
Tannenbaum" with our branches. Then I stapled the
"branches" vertically on the board to make the evergreen, or
Christmas tree. I added the
words, "On the first day of music class my teacher gave to
me...". then I listed 12 different music symbols to hang on
the tree. "A ti ti on the top of the tree" and hung the 2
eighth notes on the top. I
continued listing 11 more things written down the side of the
tree and hanging them as garland on the tree. It turned out as
a beautiful musical tree. Of course I continued the lesson by
teaching 5th graders the "real" 12 days of Christmas song and
we listened to several versions including the hottest a
cappella group, Straight, No Chaser, with their crazy silly
version of the song. They LOVED IT.
