July Favorites 2019

Another month has flown by! I have so many highlights to share this month- I hope you find some inspiration as we head into back to school season. As always I'm sharing selections from my Instagram feed to highlight some of my "favorites" of the month- if you aren't already, please come find me on IG here. I'd love to connect with you there!

1. #HipHopPlaylistChallenge

If you haven't already, I hope you'll join in this challenge that I've put together with HipHopMusicEd this summer. It's a way to encourage all of us as music teachers to listen to some more hip hop for our own enjoyment and professional development while getting new listening recommendations from seeing what others are listening to! Head to this post to get all the details on how you can get involved- it's so easy but it has been so helpful for me already!

2. Classroom Organization

My school year doesn't start until the end of August but I've been working ahead on tweaking some of my classroom organization and if you know me at all you know how happy that makes me!!  I'm so excited to share more details about my new systems I've set up for this year- stay tuned for a post on my classroom coming soon! If you want to read about how I use the 6 rainbow colors you see for anything and everything though, I recently wrote about it in this post here. It is a game-changer!

3. Inherited Treasures

Yes, I did have the same item as a "favorite" last month. I can't believe I'm saying this again but I had ANOTHER music teacher pass along a huge selection of incredible resources this month- this time I got tons of books and recordings! I am so blown away by the generosity of my friends, and I am so excited for the new resources I have to use in my classroom!!

4. Music Education Blog Posts

I love finding inspiring and helpful blog posts from other authors to share each Friday. If you missed any of these from the past month, I hope you'll read them by clicking on the pictures below. I share these every Friday on my Facebook page and on my Fermata Fridays Pinterest board if you want to stay up-to-date on the articles I find!

What were your highlights from the month of July? What are you looking forward to in August? For all of us gearing up for a new school year, best wishes for an amazing year ahead!!
