It’s not just young students who need to learn note names. Many teachers will find themselves teaching notes to older elementary and even middle school students, too.

Six different beautiful mandala designs encourage students of all ages to apply their note naming skills while creating a lovely final effect.

Music Memories | Year-End Reflection Worksheets for Music Students

Reflection is an important part of learning for both students and teachers. Students are often so busy looking ahead to the next class, project, or assignment that they don’t take time to look back at all they’ve accomplished. Guided reflection can help them see how far they have come and prompt them to review everything a music class has taught them.

When students reflect, teachers see what activities, concepts, and songs stuck with students most. It can also be encouraging to see the memories and lessons that students will carry with them when they walk out of your classroom.

Music Memories printables from Lindsay Jervis on Teachers Pay Teachers can help facilitate valuable end-of-the-year reflection in style.

Get Music Memories Printable Bundle

Music Memories {EDITABLE Ready Set Print!}

Her affordable bundle includes 21 different printable, editable worksheets with reflection prompts. Some are grade-level specific, some are not, and there are two text-free templates that you can completely customize. The attractive designs are perfect for students to color and decorate, and the finished worksheets make a wonderful display for the last few weeks of school.

Some sheets include several short writing prompts, others mix in drawing prompts, and some focus on a single larger writing or drawing prompt. Some of the fun and thought provoking questions include the following:

My favorite song we learned this year was…
If I were a music teacher for a day…
Next year in music, I hope we…
I learned the rhythm…
Some ways music will be part of my life…

Although these are designed for classroom music teachers, those who teach group instrumental or vocal music or even private lessons could easily customize them for their purposes, too. Whether you’re saying goodbye to your students for a summer or for longer, both you and your students can end on a positive note by celebrating the memories you’ve made.

Sergei Prokofiev Biography
The Hey Kids, Meet Sergei Prokofiev biography is the perfect place to begin with this Peter and the Wolf lesson pack. It’s the perfect length for kids and readable by second-grade students with a little coaching on the cities, countries, and names.

Word Search Worksheet
The composer word search included in this lesson pack is designed to build reading skills. Students won’t just be searching for a list of words at the bottom of the printable. Students will be looking for keywords from the biography that they read about Prokofiev. Those important words about the composer and his music are the words to search for. If at some point you give up and can’t find a few of the search words, they are included on the “About” page.

Meet the Composer Job Application
Students fill a job application for the composer as if they were trying to get him a job. All the information they’ll need to know is in the composer biography.

To get to know the story of Peter and the Wolf students will read it and then write their own silly variation by substituting their own words in the blanks provided on the FunLibs page – just like MadLibs.

Listening Glyph Worksheets
There are 3 listening glyphs included in this music lesson packet. The first two worksheets cover Peter’s theme and the Wolf’s theme. The third glyph includes blanks, so it can be used for any other theme. You’ll be writing the musical elements that the students will be listening for.

Peter and the Wolf Comic Strip and Lesson Plan
This activity asks students to draw a comic strip as they listen to the recording. Their finished comic strip will highlight the story of Peter and the Wolf. It’s a great way to keep them quiet and listening the whole time. The accompanying lesson plan introduces music students to the compositional technique of “leitmotif.”

Peter and the Wolf | Draw
Students will draw each character in the story as they listen to the recording. There are spaces on the worksheet for each character. The drawing spaces for the characters are presented in the order they appear in the story. This resource is an alternative resource to the comic strip and lesson plan.

Peter and the Wolf | Match
This is a classic matching game. Students draw lines to match the characters from Peter and the Wolf with the instruments that play their melodies. It’s another chance to talk about leitmotif. Students are also asked to write the name of the musical instrument in the blank to the right of the illustration.

This Peter and the Wolf Music Lesson pack is a wonderful value, and the illustrations are sweet and engaging for kids.
