Getting “Bach” to the Bench!

Getting “Bach” to the Bench!

It’s almost time to welcome our students “Bach” to the bench for another school year! Are you ready yet? I’m still working on picking out new music, printing resources, and planning an incentive program. (Thankfully we don’t start the fall schedule until Sept. 10th!) 

Simple Welcome Back Idea

One of my welcome back ideas is to engage with my students about what songs they’re listening to right now. I’m always interested to learn about the music my students love! It helps us to connect AND gives me ideas for what my student might want to learn this year.

This year I created a little photo prop that has a blank for students to fill out with the title of their current favorite song. (I’ll laminate it so that I only need to print one!) We’ll take pictures at the piano and they’ll get added to my “Bach to the Bench” wall! 

A couple of my Back to School props!

(And of course, I included a hashtag so that my students think I’m hip. Or something.

’cause using hashtags means that you’re totally cool…

… or maybe that’s so 3 years ago.

It’s still cool, right?!?)

    Hi! Not sure how to get the freebie but I’ll put #myjam here and see if it works:/ When I go to the video on FB it goes to a full screen with no where to put anything below, as you say in the video. Please let me know if there’s something else I should be doing! Thanks. I love the Back to the Bench idea!!

        Thank you for your help, Jackie! 🙂 It’s a bit awkward sharing videos that have used the chat bot!

        Rhonda, here’s the direct link just in case!
