First we have a super-easy-to-make garland in vibrant jewel tones. Doesn’t it look great above the tulips? They are my favourite spring flowers!
Cheap as Chips!
This cost me all of 50p from a pound shop for the frames and pegs. You could also make your own from envelopes or any kind of card stock if you cut out the centre with a craft knife.
Easy-peasy to customise
I simply printed out some of the common terms and symbols that I find myself referring to frequently in lessons in the first few terms of piano lessons. These are: finger numbers, keyboard geography, crotchet and quaver rhythms, dynamics, crotchet rest, slurs and the treble and bass clef.
I have deliberately made them not ‘cute’ or themed so that they are accessible by the widest range of pupils. As soon as I put a new display up my own children and pupils notice it and read everything on it. So it’s super important that whatever is in there is useful and relevant!
They can easily be swapped out, and I can imagine using them to display key signatures, composer timelines, motivational quotes, sight reading cards, practice suggestions, and questions /challenges.
50p. What a bargain!
