Five Favorite Pins of October

Here it is... my first linky party on my new blog! This is from Mrs. Miracle's Music Room. Here are my five favorite Pinterest links for October.

1. Rhythm Football - Free Version

I'm not much of a football person, but my students sure are! When I tried this awesome game out with one of my third grade classes, I had to actually tell them to cheer quieter because they were too excited. That's a good problem to have, I suppose...

2. Silly Sentence Boomwhacker Composition

I love the idea of building a sentence and color-coding to match the boomwhackers. What a great opportunity for a literacy tie-in and parts of speech review, especially with grades 2-5. I haven't found a good way to port my boomwhackers around on my cart yet, but when I do, this idea will definitely get good use.

3. 5 Little Pumpkins

I've seen and heard so many different versions of this fingerplay, but the Raffi version referenced in this pin will always be my favorite!

4. Dem Bones Book

I try to use at least one picture book a week with my PreK and Kinder classes. I have a feeling this might make it into the upcoming rotation.

5. Monster Mash Freeze Dance

I already have the generic freebie version of these Freeze Dance cards and my students really get a kick out of having to match the poses on the cards. I can only imagine how much fun they will have with the cute halloween characters. I definitely want to add this to my arsenal of "things to do while the students are hyped up on candy."

Happy Mid-October! Two weeks til Halloween!


  1. Fun list! Thanks for joining the party! :)

  2. Thanks for sharing my freeze dance file! So glad to hear your kids like my freebie version. My kids love the Halloween one! There is one pose where they have to freeze like a cat, and 1/2 of them get on all fours when they see it and half of them kick one leg out behind them as their "tail". It makes me laugh every time!

    1. That is adorable! Kids will come up with the greatest things :)

  3. Love the boomwhacker pin. I'm also a traveling teacher. I have a large laundry mesh bag with a drawstring top that I sling over one shoulder - it works perfectly for boomwhackers. I can fit more than a class set in it and it travels very easily from room to room.
