Music in Our Schools Month

Here is a picture of the bulletin board I created for MIOSM. Out from each subject, I added a fact about music and education.

Link to the facts I used here.

During the week of March 11-15, we will be celebrating in multiple ways. First, each morning we will have a music trivia question. The first homeroom to answer the question correctly will receive a prize for their class.

I also partnered with the reading and writing specialist to create a bulletin board of writing samples with music themed prompts. Here are the prompts and pictures of our writing bulletin board!

Each homeroom teacher has completed a survey about their musical preferences. In music class, we are going to play a trivia game with the results then work on creating a graph of the results to hang in the hallway for everyone to enjoy.

Survey Questions

Favorite type of music:
iPod or CD player?
Favorite musician or group:
Favorite song:    
What is your favorite radio station?
Do you play a musical instrument? (if so, which)
Have you ever performed in front of a group?
If you could join any singer/band, who would it be?
If you had the chance, what would you like to learn in music?

Lastly, borrowing an idea from my best friend's music class, March 11-15 will also be performance week. The students are invited to perform a song, play an instrument, or share another musical talent with the class. All of her students enjoyed it, so I decided to include that in our MIOSM celebration!


  1. I was wondering if you could send me or make the facts about music and other subjects bigger. Or if you got them from another website let me know. I would love to make a similar board.
