13 Nights of Treats and Frights

Have you heard of the spooktacular event coming your way? Starting tomorrow, 29 very talented music teachers are giving away 29 freebies! Yes you heard me......29 FREEBIES! The event will run from October 1st through October 13th.  Each day, two to three teachers will be featured.  Each teacher will have a Halloween/fall-themed freebie for you! Not only will there be a freebie, but each teacher will also have one fall-themed item marked down to 50% off! 

Just search "13Nights" on TPT each day to find all the batty savings and FREEBIES!!! 

I will be featured on Thursday, October 2nd, along with Elaine Ford from Mrs. Ford's Melodies and Malinda Phillips from My Musical Menagerie

On that day, I will be giving a brand new item away for FREE! Here it is!!!

These listening glyphs can be used with ANY piece of recorded music for an interactive listening activity.  Simply play a piece of music that you are studying, and students color the picture according to what they hear.  

This FREEBIE comes with 5 different glyph coloring images in two versions: generic terms and proper music terms.  You can use these with all grade levels! 

I have also just uploaded a new set of flipbooks! I have received some major TPT love on my recent composer and instrument flipbooks, so I have made more! I have created rhythm flipbooks with a Halloween twist! 

These flipbooks are a perfect assessment tool for ta's and ti-ti's.  Students simply cut on the dotted lines and paste the Halloween images over the correct rhythm.  

Not only do you get these flipbooks (total of 6), but also a bundle of other activities and worksheets to review ta and ti-ti in a Halloween world.  The Halloween bundle features a Halloween poem written by myself with accompanying worksheets to notate the beat and rhythm of the poem. 

The bundle also features worksheets for categorizing Halloween words, composition activities, and QR code Roll N' Compose! All flipbooks and worksheets feature standard and stick notation! Did I mention it will be 50% off?!  You get all of this for only $3.00 on October 2nd! 

Trust me! You do not want to miss out on this AMAZING 13 day event! Here is a list of the dates and stores involved in this event:

TIP: Enter "13Nights" everyday in TPT for all the savings from Oct. 1 through Oct. 13! 

Thank you Aileen Miracle and Sara Bibee for creating the promos and event list!

September Currently

September...really?!?!  Where did summer go? But fall is on it's way! Yay! With it already being September, that means it is time to link up with Farley at Oh, Boy 4th Grade for the September Currently. 

Here is what I am 'currently' doing! 

LISTENING- I am currently listening to the "Best of the 90's" on Spotify while I sit next to my teacher BFF, Lindsey at Miss Law's Kinders and blog :) Yes, we are 90's babies! I know, I know...youngins! But it is, oh, so nice, to have a teacher friend that you can just sit, type, talk, and create together!

LOVING- I am REALLY loving this three day Labor Day weekend.  Even though I didn't mark too much off of my to-do list, I got to enjoy quality time with my husband, family, and friends. And I can say I got 'some' of my stuff marked off the to-do list...it just keeps growing. 

THINKING- I have been daydreaming about FALL....my favorite season! I am so many great memories from the fall (band, trips, pumpkin patches, bomb fires, etc).  It also means it is officially time to break out the sweaters, boots, and scarves! Might have to get the s'mores out soon, too...just not at our house!  Unfortunately, we will NOT be hosting bomb fires this year at our house, after my husband accidently burned our entire field during the last bomb fire. Soooo....no more fires of any kind at my house! 

WANTING- I am wanting to finish my two quilts I have started.....one for a mommy-to-be and other for our queen size bed.  The queen size one has been about a year long project, I just literally do not have the space in my house to lay the entire thing out....seriously, nowhere! Even if we move all of our living room furniture, I still can't lay it out! I have to go to my in-laws to finish it! I can't wait to get both quilts done though so I can put them on our barn and get some pictures with my new big girl camera! Here is a quilt I finished last week for an expecting teacher friend of mine! Her little bundle of joy will be here in December. This will be perfect for their IU room! 

NEEDING- I am needing to complete assignments for my online classes, but just thinking about it make me want to cringe! I am trying not to be a procrastinator, but long weekends like this are really testing my procrastinating skills!

3 TRIPS- I have never been to Vegas, but I know my husband and I would absolutely love it! I am making it a goal to go to the TPT conference in Vegas next summer (hopefully it will still be there), and I will take the hubs along with me! I think it is just a place you must see before you die! The other day we were watching the 10 Coolest Places on Earth, and they were showing footage of New Zealand....OH MY! Have you seen that place! With it's massive mountains, unique glaciers, and beautiful water, how could you not want to go here?!?! 

The last place will be Napa Valley! Wine country?!?! Who would not want to go there? I would love to visit this sunny, hilly, country side in our beautiful country!

Thanks for stopping by to see what I am currently doing! Can't wait to see what you are up to!!!
