After days of working in my room, I'm really excited to reveal my music room for this year!
Here is a view of my room as you walk into it.
Here's a panoramic view of my room:
I decided on a forest theme this year, and I'm really loving the calm color scheme. Like last year, I really tried to be intentional to not cover every single wall with something, so that kids could learn in an engaging setting but not be overwhelmed. Here's the view of the tree by my door…it's a wall decal from Amazon, and can be purchased here.
Here is the sign at my entrance, which I ordered from Etsy here.
Here is my word wall. Like last year, instead of posting words by individual letters, I decided to group letters. This is much less overwhelming!
A bit further up the wall, I have hand drums hung with 3-M hooks, which is great for easy access! The levels of understanding visuals and partner poster sign are in my forest-themed music classroom decor set. I have some of my ukuleles here; I'm using magazine storage boxes from IKEA to store them.
My first bulletin board is “Forest friends,” identifying different types of musical ensembles. I just added this bulletin board to my forest-themed music classroom decor set; if you've already purchased, you can re-download under “my purchases.” The bulletin board paper is fadeless paper from Lakeshore Learning…I'm really loving the wood look!
Here is my other bulletin board, showcasing what students learn and can do in music, as it relates to the NCCAS standards.
Here is my musical symbol wall, as well as my hand signs. I love having this wall, because I've seen kids make so many connections as I'm teaching and as they are figuring out which symbol we're discussing!
I am LOVING these labels from Learning in Wonderland to help keep my concept materials organized (for each rhythmic and melodic concept). They are editable, and if you print them at 75%, they fit really well on the IKEA magazine boxes! You can also see some of my flexible seating in this corner.
Here is a picture of my barred instruments, as well as another tree wall decal:
Here is my points poster and my editable schedule cards. The cards help me keep on track every day, and can be purchased here.
These hang above my bookshelves to help students remember the instrument families. I also created labels for my bookshelves to remember what goes where!
If you'd like to put together a forest theme for your music room, here is the set I used when decorating:
Good luck setting up your classroom, and I hope your year starts off well!
I love this theme! I bought your stuff for this theme on TpT and love it! On the “I Can” board do you switch the standards out?
Thanks, Christa! I just chose the ones I thought I’d teach the most and put those on the board. 🙂 But you could switch them out too!
