Birthday Bulletin Board



Calendar of musicians' birthdays for bulletin board



There's this great  set of downloadable monthly calendars with birthdays of famous composers and musicians that Music K-8 makes available for music teachers each year.  Quite a range of musicians and composers is included--from classical to folk to pop with conductors, singers, classical instrumentalists, composers...you get the idea.

Kids can see if they share a birthday with a musician on the calendar, and I've printed pictures to highlight a couple birthdays for each month.  I rotate which months are posted, so all the months are up on the bulletin board at some point.  Hopefully students will recognize some familiar names, and they'll make a connection with the visual.  Seeing these musicians as actual people with actual birthdays helps to make them more than just a name.
