It’s been super busy behind the scenes over here. Several of you have asked when the new practice incentive program will be ready and I have good news! It will be released this weekend! WHOOHOO!!!
Thank you so much for your patience! I was hoping to have it out the beginning of this week but I was in the middle of a huge blog update and along with a few other things, caused some set backs! I promise it will be sooooo worth the wait! Here are a couple more sneak peak pictures if you missed some of them on Facebook… plus a new one! Canyon Creek Media made the whole green screen idea a possibility! So fun!
Speaking of blog update…
First, if you haven’t gone directly to FPSResources.com, check it out! I have been wanting to do a big update to the blog awhile back and then realized this is never going to get done unless I hire someone to do it for me. So who to better ask but Bryn Sowash with Skitterbug! She has been great to work with, I would highly recommend her. We are in the final phase and I am so excited!
Something you will notice when visiting is I now have a exclusive newsletter for my email subscribers! I have a lot to celebrate over the next month so you will want make sure you sign up for my email list. (This is different than signing up to receive emails for updated blog posts.) My email/newsletter subscribers will receive exclusive tips, specials, freebies, resources and more so you won’t want to miss out!
Sign up HERE!
What I will be celebrating soon…
– Updated blog look!
-500+ followers on TpT!
-1,000 followers on Facebook (only 5 more to make this official- WOW!)
Don’t miss out and be sure to subscribe to the email list now!
So if you know Lori Frazer (Yamaha guru) or ever seen her present, you will know that she collects some fun USB flash drives! I am getting ready to post about her presentation at the ASMTA conference and thought of her and her flash drives.
I couldn’t help but go to Amazon and see if there were any music themed ones. Of course there are and they are so fun! Check these out! (Just click on the pictures for the links)
Did you hear? Technique Trainer now has an unlimited studio licensing option! This is GREAT news! For a little investment (what you would spend for 5 students) you can use this resource with ALL your students!
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! To help celebrate all your hard work, TpT is hosting a Teacher Appreciation Sale! My store is participating in the sale so if you have anything on your wish list I have put everything (yes including bundles- which I usually don’t do since they are already discounted) 20% off PLUS when you use promo code: THANKYOU you will get an extra 8% off. That is 28% off!
Don’t do what I did last time and forget the promo code. Matter of fact put it in first! If you haven’t started a wish list yet, better get started because this sale only lasts for two days, May 5-6th.
To visit my TpT store, click here. Happy Shopping!
Did you hear? There is a HUGE sale going on at TpT right now. The biggest discount you will be able get for a while so be sure to take advantage! Just don’t forget to enter the special code Heroes!
I am linking up with Aileen Miracle for Wishlist Wednesday. In this linky party we are sharing one item from our store, one from another store and a clipart item.
1. Item from my store…
Since summer will be upon us before we know it, I thought I would share a Group Made Fun product which is a product you can use for camps, workshops, classes and group lessons. Right now I just have a few in my store with more coming soon!
Group Made Fun: Conducting Basics includes up to 2 hours of lesson planning, conducting basic tips for students, conducting posters to use and a snack and craft idea to do with your students.
I think it is important for students to know the basics of conducting regardless of the instrument they play. Plus it is actually a lot of fun for them to learn how to conduct and follow a conductor!
2. Item from another store…
Something that has been on my wish list for awhile is Student Savvy’s Music Activities.
Students learn about the four different musical instrument types(percussion, brass, woodwind, and string) and have the chance to create their own instrument. They brainstorm together and then draw a picture and present their creation. In addition there is an opportunity for story writing. I think it looks like a great supplemental resource in a class, camp, workshop, etc… and am looking forward in using it.
This one is a hard one because I have a lot on my wish list! Quite a few of them are from Educlips so I thought I would feature one of those. I have been wanting to get her backgrounds for awhile as there are a lot of possibilities for them.
One that I didn’t have on my wish list yet (but is now) is the Biomes and Landforms bundle. I thought this was a unique bundle and am looking forward to doing something with it!
