My Favorite Halloween "Pins"

If you haven't joined Pinterest yet, you really should.  There are so many great ideas out there for music ed.  Even if all you do is look at music ed stuff, you will never, ever run out of great ideas.

Here are some of my favorite ideas I got from Pinterest this month:

1.  "Missus White."  This is a really fun rhythmic chant using ta and ti-ti.  On a side note, I use "Miss" instead of "Mrs." but either will work - depending on what rhythm you want.  My 3-year-old daughter recently improvised - on her own, might I add - "Snow White had a fright."  She is definitely the child of 2 music teachers :)

  I recently discovered this great pin that leads to a FREE Teachers Pay Teachers product:  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Mrs-White-Ghostly-Mini-Lessons-356264

2.  "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything" - love this for vocal exploration with Kindergarten!  And I love that it incorporates literature in the music classroom:  http://carrie-persichini.blogspot.com/2011/09/childrens-literature-for-music-ed.html?m=1

3.  This sounds like a really fun Halloween rhythm game - transferring to instruments and everything:  http://www.letsplaykidsmusic.com/halloween-coming-songs-for-halloween/

I just LOVE Pinterest!  :)
