Classroom Pictures

My classroom theme for this year is “Cars2”. I always try to find something that the kids will relate to. The year that “Pirates of the Caribbean” was out I had a pirate theme, one year I did “Tune Town”, loosely named after a computer game, and last year, since our first listening unit was Renaissance music, I did a castle. My thinking is that I want the kids to enjoy coming into the music room. The first step in that process, for me, is creating as much of a “Wow” factor as I can afford. So here are some pics. You can click on any of them for a larger view.

Our first song will be “Route 66.” You can get any version you want, Karaoke, on iTunes. I went with two: Nat King Cole and John Mayer. (Disney version.)
