A Super-Sweet Deal!

I don't know about you, but I'm one of those who always looks for a bargain when I'm out shopping.  As a music teacher, my head is on the constant swivel for little treasures that I can bring into my classroom.  Target has some of the coolest dollar bins around, so I just happened upon some cute little pumpkins and erasers when I was out yesterday.

Of course, I could not pass up these great little "finds."  They will work perfectly for my little ones who are practicing high/low and sol/mi.  I'll just whip out my handy dandy staves and let the kids have fun with manipulatives.  
If I put some erasers inside each pumpkin, the students will enjoy their little jack-o-lantern carrier and the fun "treats" inside.  Yea!  I can't wait to try this fun activity.  Something else I might try is using the erasers on a beat sheet.  One could represent a "ta" and two could stand for "titi."  Oh the possibilities are endless.
In other news, I am currently working on a candy corn activity to use with my older students.  Be on the lookout over the next couple of days for it to be available.  It'll be free on TpT for the first day.  Follow me on Facebook for notifications!
And so Halloween begins on this Music-Go-Round!
