Halloween Music Class Activities

We are finally in the week of one of my favorite holidays of the year.  I do not know where my love of Halloween came from, but I do know I adore pumpkin spice, glowing jack-o-lantern faces, Reece's peanut butter cups, and fall leaves.  I think since we live in the sultry, humid, sticky South, us Southerns truly welcome everything the accompanies the crisp Fall temps.
In the music room, I find the month of October and specifically the week of Halloween to be the perfect  opportunity for super fun listening activities and spooky games!  Here is a sampling of the ideas and activities we do in October….enjoy!

The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything
This beloved children's story is perfect setting for selecting and performing sound effects to enhance a story.  My littles love this book and they get soooo into adding the instrument sounds.  Click the image below to see the lesson…




Toccata and Fugue in D Minor - J.S. Bach
This is the perfect listening activity for the week of Halloween.  I also like that this version reinforces the concepts of pitch and rhythm that my students and I have been working on since the beginning of the year.



Recorder Composition in Minor
Exploring minor keys is perfect in October.  Since my older students are playing recorders right now and their first two notes are E and G, playing in E minor is the perfect teaching opportunity!




Five Little Pumpkins on Boomwhackers
One of my favorite activities is my Five Little Pumpkins lessons exploring pitch using Boomwhackers. I have recently given this product an update.  Check it out at my store by clicking the image below. 


What are some of your favorite October and Halloween activities for the music classroom?  Please share below!  I love feedback and I promise, I'll even respond if you leave a comment!!!
