I learned about Go Animate! from another music teacher. I've just created my own animated movie. It was fun. Here it is:

I was able to get back into the music room yesterday. We have a brand-new floor that is freshly waxed. Here are a couple of pictures:

For the 2011-12 school year, I will attempt to keep a blog of activities in the music room at Bert Raney. Postings may include updates about what each grade level is learning, links to websites or videos I find interesting, reminders about music events at YME, etc.
Since school is not in session right now, there isn't a lot of news. The tile floor was just replaced and I hope to be back in the music room putting things back in order at some point in the next couple of weeks. I'll post some pictures when I'm able to get back into the classroom to take some.
One of my music teacher friends pointed me to a really cool website last week. It's called Isle of Tune. Beware. It's addicting. You may get sucked into the site and suddenly realize it's an hour later than you thought. :) I hear they are close to having an iPad app as well. We will be exploring this site as a composition activity on the SMARTboard next fall.
