Colorful smiley face that represents Song MakerStudents will be engaged with Song Maker in the Chrome Music Lab as they make their own song. It would be a great way for all teachers, not just Music teachers, to make music more accessible to your students. They can draw a picture and "play" it,  create their own song to represent a scene in a book, or create a song to go along with a piece of their writing. Students are able to share their song through a link and others can add to it. It works on phones, tablets, and computers.

Place the correct words on the picture.

In the previous post, we showed you how to make and use a digital magnetic board with poetry. Now, we want you to see these boards can be fun for any subject. Add a background image of something to be labeled or identified such as the parts of a plant, heart, skeleton, etc. Make the names of the parts and let your students place them where they go. Once you have the words, you may copy the slide and use them again. Just insert a different picture or background. You can still add new words to the slide.
