Teachers are Heroes Sale!

Just when my wishlist was about to burst at the seams, TpT announced a sale! Woohoo!

Yay! Talk about good timing. My store and many others will be on sale tomorrow for 20% off! Plus you get an additional 10% off with the code: HEROES. Don't forget your code! (speaking from experience!)

Let's link up with Aileen and take a quick look at some of the things I'm excited to get during the Heroes sale!

1. From my store, Sweet Sounds

I'm excited to offer my newest Prepare and Present slides, The Goose Round!

This pretty round is a great song for teaching "fa" and gives my kids the giggles. I tell them this is a serious song, no laughing! And of course that gets them every time. *snort*

And of course it's fantastic for improvisation! I included a few slides to get your students started and then a few slides so they can create their own.

When I teach the kinesthetic prep, I go into slow-mo so that they can tap each icon at the correct rhythmic time. I like to have them tap with a mallet or a pointer instead of the interactive white board pen for Kin prep. This way, they're not concerned about whether the mark is in the right spot. No drama. amiright?

When presenting the notation, I use a tone ladder, rhythmic or stick notation and the staff. At my Kodaly levels, Phil and Miho would always say, "Steps, Sticks, Staff." I say that literally every time I present a new note. ha!

2. From another store, Jena Hudson at Sew Much Music

I've been wanting to try out some listening glyphs for a while now and I haven't had a chance. Then I saw Jenna Hudson's St. Patrick's Listening Glyphs - perfect!

How cute are these? I'm Irish, so I might just be a little partial to some of the songs we listen to during March. I can't wait to try out these with my listening lessons!!

3. Clip Art, from Erin Bradley Designs

I recently discovered Erin Bradley Designs - aren't these cameras cute? I love her colors and designs! I already have several ideas of what I can use these for in my classroom! And I have a bunch of her stuff in my cart, just waiting!!

What are you shopping for?
