A-Z Musical Instruments Poster Pack

I’ve been looking for a set of A-Z musical instrument posters for our music room. But most sets seem to skimp on the difficult instruments (quick- name an instrument beginning with I, N, Q or Y!) and many are just line drawings.

So I’ve created my own with all letters represented including I for Igil, N for Nyckelharpa, Q for Quena and Y for Yanqin.

You can download the first set – letters A through H – here for free and I’ve included links for the other two packs and the first ‘expansion pack’ below. They’re just £3.90 (around $6.50) on the TES store.

Set 1’s eight posters include the Accordion, Bassoon, Clarinet, Didgeridoo,  Electric Guitar, Flute, Glockenspiel and Harp.

Each instrument poster features a highlighted alphabet-letter, colour and icon coded categorisation, a large photograph of the instrument, smaller supporting photographs of features and playing positions and an information box detailing alternative names, era of development, related instruments and more. Just the resource to brighten your music room walls or use as a hands on lesson resource!

Free Japanese Language Posters

I made this set of basic Japanese Language Posters for our school classrooms.

There’s a simple pronunciation guide in the top right hand corner and a QR code link to a pronunciation site.  Download via the pdf link below.

Bullying Posters 2014

We’ve just updated our bullying policy and needed to change our classroom posters to reflect this. The first two original posters here have been altered to include more cyber-bullying aspects. The third poster was redesigned completely to better follow the more responsive policy of conflict resolution we’ve adopted and show the cyclical (as opposed to linear) nature of the issue.

Classroom Rights & Responsibilities

Here are three posters sets from my classroom.

The first chart in each set lists five rights children have as students. The second chart lists the relevant responsibilities these create. The third chart lists ten class rules that will help safeguard students’ rights and guide their responsibilities.

I use adaptations in my Drama and Music areas.

Music:  ‘Listen while others speak or perform’, ‘Applaud performances’. “treat the Music Area with respect’

Drama: ‘Listen while others speak or perform’, ‘Applaud performances’. “treat the Drama Area with respect’

Posters feature on Twitter

Olympic Sports Symbol Posters

Olympic Posters screenshot

Here’s a free set of Olympic sports symbol posters.

Each poster features a graphic symbol of the sporting event, the name of the sport and a photo of a piece of equipment used in that sport.

Great for decorating the Olympic classroom!

Lesson ideas:

Drama

  • Spot the Sport: Divide into teams. Each team attempts to guess the sport from the symbol alone. A correct guess wins the card.
  • Sports Charades: Divide into teams. Place even piles of cards, face down,  a distance from each team. On the command players race to the pile, turn over the top card and return to their team. Players then try to guess the mimed sport. As soon as it’s guessed the next player races to the pile. First team finished is the winner.

Art

  • Designing sports: Using the cards as a model, design symbols for other sports or events. Focus on clarity and how easily recognisable the sport is.
  • Supersize Me: Make larger versions of the posters for a classroom display. Introduce enlarging techniques such as the grid or the pantograph for students to experiment with.
