Week 1 – The Snowball Fight

A snowball fight is a fun way for students to work together, brainstorm, and create in music class. While the snowball fight is the most fun using pencil and paper, it’s a versatile activity that will work digitally as well. 

Week 2 – Book Study Journal

As you read Pass the Baton: Empowering All Music Students, use this journal to collect your thoughts as you reflect on your music classroom.

Week 3 – Exit Ticket: Self-Reflection

When students reflect on their work, they begin to take ownership of their learning. An exit ticket is a great tool for starting the reflection process while offering us valuable information as well. 

Week 4 – Concert Song Introductions: Script Template

A great way to give students ownership when preparing for a concert is to have them write the song introductions! Students can research the piece and add their own thoughts to share with the audience. Use this template to guide your students in creating their introductions.
