This year, I am adding four ukuleles to my classroom. I have had many students begin learning ukulele on their own time because it is a nicer solution for a parent than to buying them a guitar. When they brought the ukulele to me, I realized that I needed to find resources they could use for when they are learning at home and to encourage the learning in my classroom.

It is that time of year. It is the time of year when I see elementary music educators posting amazing photos of their classrooms. The time of year when we are posting to each other questions about curriculum, how to store boomwhackers and ukuleles, compare schedules, ask about classroom management, favorite teaching tools, and so much more!
It is the time of year when we giggle at these types of memes:
And when we need great reminders from this great man, Gerry Brooks:

For me, it is that time of year that I need to clean the instruments.
