#1 - Carols Resources
Last year I introduced a set of "Favorite Carols" resources, much like the Favorite Folk Song series that I started. This year I added 10 new carols to my "Favorite Carol" set and bundled them up so that you could save (You save 50% when you buy as a bundle and not as an individual carol)! Each Favorite Carol set includes title Pages – often with multiple names for the song, historical information about the song/backstory, fun facts and information to enhance schema, slides to help explain odd word combinations/archaic vocabulary, basic musical notation of the song, lyrics for various verses, dance/movement instruction if applicable, game instructions if applicable, vocabulary flash cards, and a PowerPoint version of the file for digital presentation.
Here are some pictures of the NEW Favorite Carol Sets which are available! Click a picture below to see a larger version of the slide. Check them all out when you click this link.
#2 - Celebrate Caroling Bulletin Board
I came up with this bulletin board pack which contains posters featuring historical information about the act of caroling, fun facts about caroling and the carols themselves, printable clip art images of musical kids riding snowflakes, and ready made banner images that say the words "Celebrate Caroling." This bulletin board kit is great to print and hang for music advocacy, winter festivities/concerts, and also for student encouragement and participation.

#3 - 25 CLUES - 25 CAROLS: NAME THAT CAROL!
This bulletin board pack/PowerPoint Kit contains 25 posters featuring clues based on carol lyrics, 25 "answer" pages to print and post, set-up ideas for bulletin board use, an "ink-friendly" printable version, and ready made banner images that spell out the words "Name that Carol" This bulletin board kit is great to print and hang for music advocacy, winter festivities/concerts, and also for student encouragement and participation. Also included is a PowerPoint version in case you'd like to show this to your students through a digital projector or use the set for a rotating slideshow as pre-concert entertainment for a holiday show.
As I was creating this kit I brainstormed several different ways that you could display the set. I've included 5 different options with set-up ideas for the kit from large bulletin board, to small bulletin board, to ink-friendly set-up options.

What's on MY Wishlist!
I'll just say that I don't have a ton of Christmas-themed resources in my shopping cart right now. I'm excited for Christmas, don't get me wrong, but right now I'm thinking about and planning for January-June. I'm going to use this special sale day for all the resources that I know that I'll need in the Spring! Here are a couple things that I'm definitely going to purchase!
Rabbit Rhythm game
Check out the rest set here.
Check out the quarter/eighth set here.
Check out the half note set here.
These card sets are absolutely perfect! I'm teaching a beginning/advanced middle school orchestra class this year. Scheduling makes my ensembles weird so that I have kids who have only played for 8 weeks in the same class as kids who have played for 3 years. I need something for half a class to do while I'm working with struggling kids or working with high-achieving kids. These UNO games would be a great activity for any of my students to do while I rehearse with a larger group! I mean, there are even alto clef cards for the violas! Beat that!
