Mentoring Focus on Resources (Elementary)

One of the most frequent questions I am asked by early service classroom music teachers participating in the mentor program and/or attending conference workshops is “What resources would you recommend?” The following is a list of some of my favorite resources, as well as those of some friends and colleagues who teach elementary classroom music. This is by no means a complete list, but hopefully it will give you some guidance as you begin to build your library. The next issue will focus on middle school classroom resources and following that will be suggested children’s literature for use in the music classroom.

Attending conferences, workshops, and taking classes and certification training in the different methodologies was mentioned by all as extremely important resources for the early service teacher.
