Outer Space Around the Universe Behavior/Reward Chart

For a friend, I made this Outer Space Around the Universe Behavior/Reward Chart. If you already have my Around the World Behavior Chart, this one includes some outer space background you can print out, as well as 15 new aliens, spaceships, or Star Wars characters to use with it.

Maybe I'll do an outer space theme another year and come up with more things. Get it HERE

Recorder Mega Pack Finally Done

After 4 years of work, I finally have my whole recorder system on paper and ready to go.

I work at a low income school and have developed my system so that every student gets a black belt (9 belts with 24 songs) and many go way beyond.

A big reason why they do this is that they are so motivated by the 70 extra belt songs that they can pass off.

You can get my black belt system for free here:



Some of my kids advance so quickly that I developed a huge pack of activities and 70 extra belts with charts for displaying what they have done on my outside bulletin board. All of the kids are so motivated to work on it. You can read about how I use the fast finishers are tutors here: Differentiating With Student Tutors in the Music Classroom

Here are preview pages of the Recorder Mega Pack:
