I went back to an old idea and expanded and upgraded. A few years ago I made a board called "Rockin' Into the New Year" where I posted pictures of famous musicians who were born in January. My kids and staff loved it and commented on how fun it was to see all different musicians who were January babies. So this year I updated and upgraded! I found better and more exciting photos, included some biographies, and "glam"ed it up a bit. Check out the photos below to see how it worked out.
Today I had a teacher stop me in the hallway and say, "Hey, what made you choose the musicians that you did?" I told her that they were all January birthdays and she said, "Well, that's good because if you were going to make that bulletin board without including Freddy Mercury then you're missing out." Clearly there are other musicians that need to be featured and an excited set of fans that want to see their favorite musician in the spotlight.
I was excited to print and post this set, but now I'm excited to take it down and put up the next one. It's fun to see what celebrities/composers/performers the kids pick out and even more fun to see what artists resonate with the teachers! It's a great way to get everyone involved...too bad my friend is going to have to wait until September for Freddy Mercury to show up. :D
