Five Favorite Music Freebies

Hello! Today I am joining up with Jen at Noteworthy by Jen for her Five Favorite Music Freebies Linky Party! To view all of the bloggers that have linked up, click the picture below:

I'm certain I'll be sharing at least some of the same items as my blogging colleagues, but here goes. Click the product pictures to be taken directly to that item on Teachers Pay Teachers.

1. Looby Loo from David Row at Make Moments Matter

I love, love, love this entire series of Favorite Folk Songs! They make both fantastic projectables as well as fantastic bulletin boards. David did wonderful research on each of the folk songs he includes. 

2. Inner Hearing Signs and More from Lindsay Jervis

These signs are a great way to get kids practicing their voice types, and going between auditing, solfa, and words. I did not turn them into the hand puppets, but attached them to large craft sticks instead. My students like getting to be the leader and deciding when we switch (even when it is not in the most musical place to change).

3. Music Composer of the Month: Antonin Dvorak from Music with Sara Bibee

This is another freebie to give buyers an idea of what the entire series looks like. I adore these composer packs and think that they are fantastic for teaching elementary (and probably middle school) students about composers. She also has packs for jazz artists and a series of woman composers.

4. Bird Songs Music Listening Freebie from Cori Bloom

This sampler from Cori's year-long listening and writing product is great for older students and perfect for your sub tub if you teach 5th grade and up. I don't own the full product since 5th graders are my oldest, but I have many of the other sets/products for writing integration and love them.

5. Walk and Running Rhythm Cards Freebie from Aileen Miracle

I love using these cards with my kindergarteners when we are practicing long and short-short (ta and ti-ti). They are great for kinesthetic practice, although I do find that they work better staying in one place rather than moving through the room.

BONUS: Aileen's Font Freebie from Aileen Miracle

There are so many free fonts on TPT, but I like Aileen's because it looks very much like a student's printing (like I would typically use Comic Sans MS for). This is the first one I found on TPT and I think that's one reason I keep using it - consistency!

Enjoy - and let me know what you think in the comments!
