Look How Many Of You There Are! Cat in the Hat poster

When I had my frog chart up on my door, my younger students loved to just stand there and count the number of students I had whilst waiting for me to finish with the student before them. Parents thought it was great too, and I thought it was good for some parents to see that &hellip Continue reading »

Scale Rhythm Cards

I whipped up some Scale Rhythms using the names of Dr Seuss’ books.  The idea is that you give your student a scale to play, and they choose one of these cards and play their scale with the rhythm of the way you’d say the card.  The Harry Potter ones were a great hit with &hellip Continue reading »

You Can Steer Yourself Any Direction You ‘Chews’

I removed all the Harry Potter containers and jars from my piano, and I have a new canister there now.  It is labelled “You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you ‘chews’ “.  I have filled it with Apple Chews, and students are drooling! &hellip Continue reading »

Golden Snitches and a Tally Board

My studio finished up with the Warthogs theme last term.  Most of my students got involved and absolutely loved it, but you may get some students who can’t do Harry Potter either because they’re too young or for religious reasons. We had an awful lot of fun though.  Slytherdor won.  We worked out they ended up with &hellip Continue reading »

Warthogs in Progress

Two days into recording points for the houses, and we’re doing really well so far! Lots of house points already.  The ’5′ points is from someone getting all the musical symbol flash cards correct.  Appropriate tags for the jars.  The label on ‘Amortentia’ states “…must be administered continuously to maintain effect’.  Perfect for flash cards, &hellip Continue reading »

Slytherdor and Ravenpuff Student Sorting Cards

Something simple, but it works. I cut out these cards, put them in a small Pringles container and hid that underneath my Musical Sorting Hat.  Each student gets to put their hand under the hat “Careful, it has been known to bite”, and pull out a random card.  No peeking! Here’s the link:  Slytherdor and &hellip Continue reading »
