I thought I would show you a few pictures of what the studio looks like and how I organized everything in case some of you might need some ideas.
Here's a quick look at the decor:
MUSICIANS IN TRAINING with the logo showing the concepts we're working on all year - Skill, Focus, Knowledge, Endurance & Creativity.
We also hung the awesome sports pennants around the room. They really came out great and add SO MUCH festivity to the studio!
The incentive is packed with cards to use with all of the games. In looking for a way to corral them, I purchased a bunch of "crayon boxes" from a local Walmart that work perfectly! Then I found a slotted container in my stash at home that works perfectly to hold them.
I set the container on our game table and it's available for any game/sport we do in a lesson. If I need to use more of the table, it has a handle so I can easily remove it.
Side note: these are available on-line but were significantly more expensive even on the Walmart site then actually purchasing them in the store.
The containers work perfectly for cards, but also help corral the game pieces and any other items (dice, post-its, etc.) that you may need. I have found that if everything is easily assessable right where I need it, it saves precious teaching time.
When you don't have a lot of wall space you use whatever you can!
To the right of the Aquatics, I used the rest of the half wall top to corral everything I need for the golf course and the equestrian eventing. I've already played a few holes of golf this week since we just started and my students have really enjoyed it!
These are just a few ideas that I hope helps you if you've purchased MUSICIANS IN TRAINING leading to the FUN-LYMPICS. If you haven't, considering joining those of us who are helping our students celebrate music AND the upcoming summer Olympics!
